First circular

In 2021 it is 150 years since the Geological Society of Sweden was founded. We will commemorate this by organising an anniversary meeting to be held in Uppsala 17–19 August 2021. Our ambition is to organise a meeting that will be of inte­rest to all geoscientist that are active in Sweden or that have an interest in various aspects of Swedish geoscience. Thus, we ask you to mark the dates in your calendar already now.

We are aware of the current pandemic, and the fact that we at this stage do not know how it will affect us in the coming year. However, we think that you all, like our­selves in the organizing committee are hoping and longing for a physical geoscientific meeting in Sweden.
