Dr. Rob Raeside awarded the GAC 2021 J. Willis Ambrose Medal

The Atlantic Geoscience Society congratulates Rob Raeside for his much deserved award!

“For his decades of dedication to the geoscience community through his tireless contributions to the work of our geoscience societies and Canadian academic institutions on local, regional and national levels.”

For more information about the J. Willis Ambrose Medal, see the GAC website.

Statement from the Atlantic Geoscience Society

We are deeply disappointed and saddened by the cuts made to academic programs at Laurentian University. Access to education in Northern Ontario will be seriously damaged and the community will lose a critical resource if this process continues. We stand with the Laurentian University community at this time and call on the Provincial Government of Ontario to work with the university community instead of destroying it.

GAC-MAC 2022: 15-18 May 2022

Call for Program Proposals now issued; deadline 15 May 2021

The conference will consist mainly of oral and poster contributions, arranged in thematic special sessions and symposia as well as in general topical sessions. The schedule will be organized to promote discussion among meeting participants. A variety of short courses and field trips are planned for both before and after the conference. At this time we are planning for an “in-person” conference with the possibility for live-streaming options for some presenters and/or sessions.
The call for Special Sessions and Symposia along with Short Courses and Workshops is now open, with the proposal deadline of May 15, 2021.

See Call for Program Proposals for more details.
