GSA International

GSA's second Interdisciplinary Interest Group (International IIG) was approved by Council in November 2015. The International IIG provides a communication platform for GSA members and promotes international relevant discussions around global geoscience hot topics, meetings, and GSA global activities.

The International IIG encourages and hosts international geoscience and environmental-related discussion topics through the Connected Community platform and promotes meetings, exchanges of visiting scholars/lecturers, organizes Annual Meeting topical sessions, and helps organize and promote field workshops. GSA International replaces GSA International Section effective 1 January 2015.

The award is made possible through a gift to the GSA Foundation by James B. Thompson, Jr., whose bequest contributed to the endowment of two lecture tours by distinguished geologists, one a non-North American scientist to tour academic and related institutions within North America, and the other a North American scientist to tour foreign universities and geological institutions. Both tours are arranged under the guidance of GSA International.
