The 49th Annual Meeting of GSA’s North-Central Section is being hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Dept. of Geoscience and by the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey. Technical sessions will take place in the Frank Lloyd Wright–designed Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center overlooking beautiful Lake Monona in Madison, Wisconsin.

The meeting will feature theme sessions and field trips that highlight the geologic diversity of the region, from the Precambrian Midcontinent Rift and the Baraboo Hills, to Paleozoic sedimentary rocks exposed in the nearby Driftless Area, to new interpretations of the Cenozoic evolution of the Lower Wisconsin River, to effects of recent human activities on Earth’s water and mineral resources, and to new approaches to analysis of geoscience data and educating the next generation of geoscientists.

The meeting will also offer opportunities to visit research laboratories and the Geology Museum in Weeks Hall on the UW campus, and to enjoy a traditional Wisconsin “tailgate” dinner in the Weeks Hall courtyard.
