Thank you to everyone who presented talks at the GSN 2022 Symposium held May 2-5, 2022 at the Nugget Resort in Sparks, Nevada!

We also want to recognize our Technical Session Chairs, Molly Hunsaker, Mike Ressel and Curtis Johnson.  These volunteers put in hundreds (thousands?) of hours of their time to solicit speakers, poster presenters, and authors to present at the 2022 Symposium.  They organized, scheduled, edited, and performed many other tasks, all while working their regular jobs.  Without these dedicated volunteers, the GSN would not be able to put on this world-class geologic symposium!  THANK YOU!


Will there be a 2022 symposium proceedings?

Yes, the 2022 Symposium published the 2022 digital proceedings on a USB drive and contains both the 2020 and 2022 content of pdf-format papers and abstracts. Both digital proceedings volumes were provided as part of every full technical program registration.  There will not be a hard copy of the 2022 Symposium papers.  Click here to purchase the 2022 USB or the 2020 Proceedings 2 volume set:


Will GSN publish the abstracts and refereed papers from 2020?

In June 2020, the GSN published all accepted abstracts and refereed papers in a special 2020 GSN proceedings volume. Why did we publish these when the Symposium was postponed to 2022? The papers contain time-sensitive information, are snap-shots of the current state of the science and industry, and were written with every intent to be published and presented. GSN received over 200 abstracts and nearly 80 papers. Papers have been peer-reviewed and edited multiple times.  The 2020 GSN Symposium publication represents thousands of hours of work on the part of authors, reviewers, and editors alike. Updated 2020 papers plus new 2022 papers have been published on a USB drive only.  This includes previous 2020 papers, new papers & abstracts, as well as updated papers and abstracts.  Please visit the GSN’s Bookstore to order the 2020 Volumes OR the 2022 USB drive (which includes the digital 2020 volumes).  GSN BOOKSTORE
