Anniversary meeting in august

This year, the Geological Society of Sweden celebrates 150 years since it was founded, and we wish to celebrate this with an anniversary meeting in Uppsala 17–19 August. Our ambition is to gather as many as possible of the geoscientists that are active in Sweden or that have an interest in various aspects of Swedish geoscience.

35th Geological Winter Meeting

In January 2022, Iceland will host the 35th Nordic Geological Winter Meeting in Reykjavík.

The preparation for the meeting is well under way. However, due to the Covid-19 situation, it is not certain what the world will look like in 2022 but the current plan is an on-site meeting that will take place on 5–7 January. Plan B is to have the meeting online. The final decision will be made in May or June 2021.

A first circular will be sent out in February 2021, and further information will also be posted here.

Finally a new web site

As you can see, we have today launched a new website. The technology behind it is new and this makes the work of maintaining and updating the website easier. More people can also write posts on the page, which we hope will lead to a more alive website.

Hopefully, you as a user will also find that the website has become more easy to navigate. If you find something that has gone wrong, or think something is missing, or if you cannot log in, get in touch with us at info@geologiskaforeningen.se.

100 issues of Geologiskt forum

This week, issue number 100 of Geologiskt forum is distributed. The first issue of the magazine saw the light of day in March 1994. It was then something of an experiment, but in retrospect we can conclude that the experiment was quite successful. We hope you will find something in this issue that can interest you and would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. If you are a member you can, as usual, also download the issue here on the website.
