There is no getting around it — financing a trip to Puerto Rico is going to be challenging for many, especially students. Start planning now for what may be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet in Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico is large enough to have varied geology, but small enough (100 × 35-mile) to make field excursions relatively easy. Features include a world-class karst province, a central mountain range with igneous and metamorphic terrane, serpentinites, economic mineral deposits, a classic rudist outcrop, the only tropical rain forest in the U.S. National Forest system, limestone cliffs, and active tectonics. Also in store: geoarchaeology, natural hazards, anthropogenic impacts, water resource issues, and much more.

The meeting will be held on a Wednesday and Thursday in hopes that many will be interested in coming for the week and attending a pre- or post-meeting field trip or workshop or to take some time to explore the island.


Puerto Rico is a Commonwealth of the United States; its people are U.S. citizens. No passport is required to visit if you are a U.S. citizen. However, if you plan to visit other Caribbean islands you will need one.
