As some may or may not know, the Geological Society of America (GSA) will be hosting its 2023 Annual Meeting (Cordilleran Section) from May 17th through 19th of 2023 in Reno, Nevada.
UC Davis’s Dr. Nicholas Pinter, as well as his associates Kevin Schmidt and Joel Scheingross, will be hosting a technical session at the 2023 GSA Cordilleran Section Meeting regarding Geomorphology and Public Policy in the 2020s: Earth-Surface Science in Service to Policymakers and Society. A breakdown of the discussion topic is provided below:
“Geomorphology studies the surface and near-surface of Earth and generally focuses on time scales most visible and, arguably, most relevant to humans. Geomorphologists have a unique role in helping policymakers, managers, and stakeholders create balanced, forward-looking, and science-based solutions to the pressing challenges facing society today. We seek specific case studies showing how earth-surface geology has—or can and should—guided solutions to challenges, such as natural-hazard risk reduction, sustainable land use and development, resilience to the impacts of climate change, and others.“
Dr. Pinter and his colleagues designed the technical session to accommodate professional geologists and geomorphologists who are presently working on problems relevant to public policy and society. Those interested in attending the GSA Cordilleran Meeting or who intend to submit abstracts relevant to the above topic or additional topics available for discussion should visit the GSA website. The abstract deadline is February 14, 2023.
