Geological Society of America annual meeting 2015

This year the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America was held in Baltimore, Maryland. This is one of the largest conferences that palaeontologists attend, with over 6000 attendees from all fields of Earth Sciences. Caitlin and Laura went along and talked to many of the palaeontology researchers who had come to present their work on posters and in talks.

Unlike some of the other more specific palaeontology conferences, at GSA researchers present on all areas of palaeo, including early life, invertebrate, trace fossil and vertebrate, integrated with studies of sedimentology and taphoonomy.
