Welcome to the English homepage of Geological Society of Sweden

Geological Society of Sweden is 142 years old this year 2013, has about 600 members and distributes two scientific journals.

The purpose of this home page is to give information about the society's activites. We publish a scientific journal called GFF, which conatins peer-reviewed articles within all aspects of geology. We also publish Geologisk Forum, a popular-science magazine written in Swedish that published articles on all aspects of Earth Science.

We also have the ambition to publish news, guides, debate articles, and more in all fields of geological science. We start with a small English site which we hope to develop further on.

Jan Bergström Young Geoscientist Award (13-04-02)

The late Professor Jan Bergström dedicated his professional life not only to his chosen field of paleontology, where he became an international expert on early arthropod evolution and evolutionary mechanisms during the Cambrian, but also to the development of geology in Sweden, and not least, to the Geological Society of Sweden, Geologiska Föreningen.

To honor his memory and service, the Geological Society of Sweden has created the Jan Bergström Young Geoscientist Award. This award will be given annually to a geoscientist at the start of her/his career who through original research has made significant contributions in earth sciences.
