Advancing knowledge in the geosciences to understand Earth’s past,
present, and future: 70th Annual Meeting of GSA’s Southeastern Section
Boulder, Colo., USA: The 2021 Geological Society of America Southeastern
Section Meeting will be hosted by Auburn University on 1–2 April, with a
fully online format. The technical program will be exceptionally broad and
diverse, with topics ranging from planetary geology and Earth’s origins to
resilience in the context of environmental hazards and future strategies to
mitigate climate change. The featured symposia are “CO2 Storage
in Geological Formations,” and “Climate Resilience.”
The online format will allow maximum participation for all registrants and generous meeting sponsors while increasing the scope of scientific
content for symposia, technical sessions, field trips, and short
courses—and most importantly, ensuring safety. The meeting will be rich on
the topic of geoscience education, with a strong emphasis on field
instruction and student safety, and it will offer many opportunities for
student participation and career mentoring.
