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.
The Board of the Geological Society has decided to award the 2020 Jan Bergström Prize for young promising researchers in earth sciences to Stefan Andersson, Uppsala University. The prize is awarded to young geoscientists who have already made significant contributions to the geosciences early in their scientific careers.
The Geological Society’s Hiärne Prize for significant popular science activities in the field of geosciences will be awarded to Erik Sturkell in 2020.
