2019 GSA Northeastern Section

54th Annual Meeting

Holiday Inn Portland-By the Bay
17–19 March 2019 • Portland, Maine

Chair: Steve Pollock,



Deadline: 1 June

The 54th Annual NE GSA meeting will be scientifically robust. In order to meet our goal we encourage proposals for theme sessions, workshops, and short courses covering all areas of the Earth sciences. We encourage proposals that deal with topics beyond the geographic limits of the Northeastern Section and sessions celebrating the careers of our colleagues. We are particularly interested in cross disciplinary sessions which stress

  • the impacts of the geosciences on society and critical zones;
  • applied geology;
  • soils;
  • hydrogeology;
  • geophysics and seismology;
  • applications of geochronology;
  • sedimentary geology and paleontology;
  • petrology, tectonics and structural geology;
  • magmatic, structural and tectonic processes of divergent margins and hotspots;
  • climate;
  • Quaternary geology and geomorphology;
  • limnology;
  • geoscience education.

We will continue to serve the membership through pre-meeting short courses and workshops that provide CEU credits.

Submissions must include:

  • Title of session/shortcourse/workshop/field trip
  • Principal organizer (name, affiliation and email);
  • Co-organizers (names, affiliations and email), if applicable;
  • Identification of proposal as theme session, symposium, field trip, short course or workshop;
  • Preference for format (oral or poster), if applicable;
  • Short description (50 words or fewer);
  • Proposals should be emailed to Robert Marvinney, robert.g.marvinney@maine.gov or Amber Whittaker, amber.whittaker@maine.gov.
