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
