51st Annual Meeting

Geosciences in the Heart of Texas

San Antonio is a vibrant, multicultural city with scenic waterways, culinary treasures, and easy access to geology ranging from urban caves to Precambrian rocks of the Llano Uplift. The city boasts a wide range of local attractions, including the Spanish Missions National Historic Park, the Riverwalk, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, world-class museums, and a thriving culinary scene ranging from street food to five-star fare. We have developed a technical program that explores a wide range of geologic processes and related topics, and our meeting coincides with some of the best weather of the year, providing opportunities for spectacular field trips across the south Texas region.
