On the 11th to 12th of May we held the annual meeting and the Swedish Geological Spring Meeting in Stockholm. The new board for 2024 was elected at the annual meeting and afterwards followed a day packed with interesting talks on the theme Arsenic and sulphide bearing rock in the Mälardalen area. This part of the day was concluded with an intense panel debate and followed by an informal dinner. About 60 people attended the Spring meeting. The next an excursion was held in the Arlanda area and led by Jenny Andersson, Mattias Göransson, Per Nysten (SGU) and Iwona Klonowska (Uppsala Universitet). So great to see so many members and collegues!
On January 10–12 next year (2024) we have the joy and honor to host the 36th Nordic Geological Wintermeeting at Svenska Mässan in Gothenburg!
Already now you may suggest Special sessions for the meeting or you may contact us if you would need an extra meeting room during the conference.
We would like to welcome Stefan Andersson as new associate editor for GFF.
He is taking over from Magnus Ripa who has fulfilled this task for many years. Thank you Magnus!
Stafan was awarded the Jan Bergström Young Scientist Award in 2016 and we are so happy that Stefan chooses to engage in the work of the society through GFF!

We have the joy to present the 2022 joint award ceremony with Geosektionen. Erik Jonson has been elected Geologist of the Year 2022 and Axel Sjöqvist has been awarded the Jan Bergström Young Scientist Award.
The ceremony will take place at the Department of Geology i Lund the 4th of November. There will be a packed programme with mingling, talks and dinner, starting at 16.30. A detailed programme and more information can be found at Lunds Geologiska Fältklubb, whre you will also find the registration for the event.
We have the honor to present the 2022 Jan Bergström Young Scientist Award. An unanimous board have elected Axel Sjöqvist for his important contribution to the understanding of the formation of the curious rocks that host the rare earth element mineralisation at Norra Kärr and for his ability to balance safely in the potentially controvicial debate regarding the utilisation of geological resources. Our warmest congratulations Axel!
We have the great honor to present this years Jubilee Fund awardee!
The Geological Society 2022 Hjulström Award within the area of sedimentology is awarded to Mark Johnson, docent and university lecturer at the Department of Earth Science, Gothenburg University.
Mark Johnson has worked extensively on sedimentology, geomorphology and on the formation of glacial deposits and history, as well as present-day glacial processes and varved sediments.
His sedimentological work is therefore fully in line with the original ideas and the spirit of Filip Hjulström on the uptake, transportation and deposition of sediments.
Mark is internationally renowned and a positive driving force within the Swedish geological community, not the least as a former President of the Geological Society.
The award ceremony will take place during the 150 years anniversary meeting in Uppsala 17-19 of August 2022.
The anniversary meeting programme is ready and can be downloaded here.
