Geoscience Society of New Zealand Annual Conference

Christchurch 22-25 November 2020


Tēnā tātou katoa, 

We invite you to the Geoscience Society of New Zealand annual conference in Christchurch, 22-25 November 2020.  

2020 has been an unusual year and as it draws to a close our conference provides an opportunity to meet other members of the geoscience community.

This year we've had over 300 abstracts submitted, and so it may well be one of the largest conferences in years.

In addition, there are the ever-popular pre- and post-conference field trips and workshops.

The programme will include the latest research on last year’s Whakaari eruption and the rapid developments that have been made in delivering geoscience teaching online as a result of the COVID pandemic.

Sessions will also showcase the most recent research on the active tectonics of New Zealand, the climate record, New Zealand’s marine environment today and in the past, and the glaciology of Antarctica and New Zealand, and bring together scientists, policy makers and practitioners to discuss how to improve risk and hazard outcomes for New Zealand society.
