Hope you are all re-adjusting from your post-GSA email firestorm. To start, the GSA Geobiology & Geomicrobiology Division Executive Committee would like to thank all of our attendees, presenters, and awardees who made this past GSA annual meeting in Phoenix an amazing success. The number of GBGM talks and presentations continues to grow 💪 with a dozen technical oral and poster sessions sponsored or co-sponsored by the GBGM this year alone. A huge thanks as well to all our fellow geobiologists who took the time to celebrate with us for the ever-growing annual awards luncheon.
