The purpose of GSA International is to promote, create, and enhance opportunities for international cooperation,
provide a forum for science and policy discussions that are international in scope and relevance, build
collaborative relationships with divisions and associated societies on international issues and strengthen
cooperation with international geoscientific societies.
International provides a communication platform for GSA members and promotes international relevant discussions
around global geoscience hot topics, meetings, and GSA global activities.
International encourages and hosts international geoscience and environmental-related discussion topics through the
Connected Community platform and promotes meetings, exchanges of visiting scholars/lecturers, organizes Annual
Meeting topical sessions, and helps organize and promote field workshops.
Serving members in 118 countries, GSA programs unite the global science community in shaping the future of the Earth
sciences. Wherever you live or work, GSA invites you to become involved by joining our network.
It is with regret that the GSA and the Geological Society of China (GSC) have decided to postpone this meeting to 2020. Please check back for more details.
The award is made possible through a gift to the GSA Foundation by James B. Thompson, Jr., whose bequest contributed
to the endowment of two lecture tours by distinguished geologists, one a non-North American scientist to tour
academic and related institutions within North America, and the other a North American scientist to tour foreign
universities and geological institutions. Both tours are arranged under the guidance of GSA International.
