It's easy to drive to Cincinatti—much of the Midwest and eastern United States is within a 500-mile
This joint Section Meeting will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, at the Duke Energy Convention Center,
located downtown. Urban renewal throughout Cincinnati and just across the Ohio River in northern
Kentucky has created dozens of breweries and brew pubs, new and renovated city parks, restaurants,
cafés, and coffee bars, museums, theatres, and shopping. Cincinnati’s seven hills lie atop the
world-renowned fossiliferous Ordovician Cincinnatian Series, and southwestern Ohio and northern Kentucky
mark the terminus of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. The region’s bedrock geology and its glacial history
underlie Cincinnati’s nexus of landslide hazards and urban development, as well as the dynamics of large
and small watersheds throughout the region. Six short courses, 45 technical sessions, and 12 field trips
will highlight the region’s geology, reflect modern quantitative approaches, and cover the range of
twenty-first-century geoscience, from the critical zone to the deep crust. There will also be a panel
discussion featuring corporate environmental and sustainability managers. Abstract submissions on all
aspects of geoscience are welcome. Amid catastrophic climate change, there is a widening recognition
that a global sustainable future requires revolutionizing resource management and development, which
depends on an integrated understanding of earth materials, processes, and history. Now is the time for
geoscience to make a more meaningful impact in education, research, and society. Please join us in the
A Twenty-First-Century Meeting
