The Geological Society of Washington (GSW) was founded in 1893 to
promote the increase and dissemination of geological knowledge. GSW provides a forum for geological interchange through a program of regularly scheduled formal talks, informal communications, opportunities to meet colleagues, field trips, and public service. Members represent a wide cross-section of the local geologic community including geoscientists from federal (U.S.Geological Survey, NASA, NSF, military, DOE, EPA) and state government, Congress, Carnegie Institution of Washington, local universities, museums (including the Smithsonian), consulting firms, Earth science educators, and others interested in the geological sciences.
Our meetings are open to anyone who is interested; Visitors and guests are welcome.
