New Mexico Geological Society Annual Spring Meeting
Macey Center, Socorro, NM
April 21, 2023
Preliminary Program Available


Every spring, the Society holds a meeting in Socorro to allow presentation of geoscience research, principally from New Mexico and adjacent areas (including Mexico). The meeting features a variety of technical sessions that span the breadth of topics of the geosciences including geology, hydrology, geophysics, paleontology, and mineral resources. This event is always well attended, and is a great way to meet other researchers and students working in New Mexico.

Student participation is highly encouraged as this meeting provides an excellent venue for student presentations. During the meeting, several Society scholarships are awarded to students from New Mexico.
