Geological Society of America member scientists, students, and colleagues meet in Texas
Date:2/23/2012

Boulder, Colorado, USA - Geoscientists from across the south-central U.S. and beyond will convene in Texas on 8-9 March to discuss new science, expand on existing science, and explore the geologic and scenic wonders of the region. Sessions cover the tectonic history of the Trans-Pecos, the Rio Grande, west Texas aquifers, geoarchaeology, petrology, cave processes, and minerals and fossils. Field trips go to Big Bend National Park, including a raft/canoe tour of Colorado Canyon.

Located in the southern foothills of the Davis Mountains, where the Rockies meet the Ouachitas, the campus of Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas, is ideally situated for the 2012 GSA South-Central Section Meeting celebrating the geology of the region, which includes the stunning Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, and Davis Mountain State Park.

Symposium: Big Bend National Park and Vicinity: A Decade of Research

Conveners: Don Corrick, Big Bend National Park; Dee Ann Cooper, The University of Texas at Austin; and Roger Cooper, Lamar University.

When: Friday, 9 March, 9 a.m.-12:10 p.m.

Where: Sul Ross University, Espino A & B

This special session, open only to meeting registrants, includes presentations on a new and improved fossil exhibit in Big Bend National Park; mysteries of the sixty-one giant Platyceramus platinus (Cretaceous bivalve molluscs) concentrated in a patch along one bedding plane in the Boquillas Formation east of Lajitas, Texas; the proposed connection between storms and microbes in the Del Rio Formation of west Texas; and more. Session details are online at http://gsa.confex.com/gsa/2012SC/finalprogram/session_29956.htm.
