Fieldwork, Past, Present, and Future, at the GSA Foundation Booth

    We invite you to take a journey through time at GSA2017 in Seattle, starting in field camp days of yore, stepping into current mapping examples and field camps, and traveling into the future of field geology, including planetary exploration.

    A map by Florence Bascom will be on site, juxtaposed with the first-ever high-resolution geologic map of one of America’s most iconic natural landmarks—both entailing painstaking processes of rather different natures.

    We look forward to seeing you in Seattle.
