We encourage you to submit an abstract for our topical session: “New Voices in Geobiology (T249)” to be held at the GSA Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington, on October 22-25, 2017.
The goal of this session is to bring together new research (and new researchers) focusing on the interplay between geologic and biologic processes with a special emphasis on new field sites, novel materials/methods, and the development/refinement of proxies. We particularly encourage early career faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students to submit abstracts to this session. Overall we hope to bring together scientists specializing in geobiology, biology,(geo)microbiology, paleobiology/paleontology, inorganic and organic geochemisty, paleoecology, paleoclimatology, and sedimentology to generate new, interdisciplinary ideas and collaborations at the intersection of these fields.
The GSA abstract website is now open for submissions and the abstract deadline is midnight, August 1st.
Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions. Please forward this on to colleagues or students who may be interested in this session.
We hope to see you at GSA!
