Climate, Environment, and Natural Hazards

The study of how Earth’s surface, habitats, and climate are affected by natural and anthropogenic processes.  This includes studies of natural hazards, environmental geology, relationships between geology and health, biogeochemical interactions, and changes in ecosystems over geological and human time scales.


Learn how GSA's Divisions & Associated Societies work together to support your scientific interests. (click to open/close).

GSA’s 17 Divisions are special-interest groups that members have formed throughout the long history of GSA to serve their professional interests. They are not formally established by the Society to represent every aspect of our collective scientific involvement. GSA is open to the formation of new Divisions as needs and interests arise.

Associated Societies are like-minded scientific organizations who collaborate with GSA on many levels in pursuit of mutual goals to advance the geosciences.  Many Associated Societies are linked to GSA Divisions, either through formal current agreements or historical roots, and they serve GSA members in much the same way as Divisions.  Associated Societies are important contributors to GSA’s Annual Meeting technical program and to the dissemination of geoscience knowledge.

Together these important components represent all aspects of the geoscience profession and make GSA the broad, unifying scientific society that our members desire and support.
