William Smith Meeting: Geological mapping of our world & others

Map-making is and has always been, a fundamental tool for developing geological knowledge.

The 3-day William Smith Conference, supported by both The Geological Society and The Geological Remote Sensing Group and taking place between 19th – 21st October 2021, will be an international celebration of geological mapping.

We will explore its historical importance and future directions, and how this form of mapping can help to deduce Earth and planetary evolution and processes, in its wide context.

The program will explore Earth’s surface to subsurface realms, and during the 2021 Year of Space, we will travel beyond or our planet to extra-terrestrial bodies.
