Meeting Announcement

Geological Society of America

Boulder, Colo., USA: The 2023 joint meeting of the 72nd annual meeting of the Southeastern Section and 58th annual meeting of the Northeastern Section of the Geological Society of America will be held in Reston, Virginia, USA, on 17–19 March. We are pleased to announce a robust and diverse technical program that links the geology of the southeastern and northeastern U.S. and examines many key issues, including sea-level rise; climate and environmental change; energy and critical minerals; and diversity, equity, and inclusion in the geosciences. The meeting has many opportunities for students . Special tributes are planned for A. Conrad Neumann and William A. “Bill” Thomas.

The meeting offers short courses in applied micropaleontology, stormwater management in karst terrain, integrating ESRI mobile, online and desktop GIS for field data acquisitions, and an essential guide to luminescence dating.

Field trips will explore the Piedmont geology and the Civil War at North Anna River fall zone, Virginia; tectonic evolution of the northern Shenandoah massif, Virginia; Cretaceous and Paleocene fossiliferous sediments of Cabin Branch and Tinkers Creek, Maryland; and a visit to Capitol Hill.
