Vancouver is drawing geoscientists into its grasp this October with the arrival of the Geological Society of America meeting. If you’re coming to the science-party, here’s a few ideas on how to spend your time outside the conference:
- Geo Tweet-up! Geoscientists have a lively online community, with many of us only knowing each other digitally. Let’s meet up in person! Pick which timeslot makes the most sense to you here; I’ll update in October with an actual place-and-time. The venue will be a walking-distance all-ages restaurant/microbrewery. As your local host, I promise it’s friendly to non-drinkers and scientists travelling solo; contact me if you have additional concerns about the venue. (Update: Sunday October 19th at 8pm at Steamworks!)
- Go on a Vancouver adventure! I put together a list of suggested activities when scientists of all varieties descended on my town for AAAS; I’ll try to get together a geoscience-specific list in the next few weeks. Have particular questions you want the insider-info on? Drop a comment and I’ll make sure to include it!
That’s it for now; as always you can contact me in the comments here, on Twitter, or by writing to mika @ this domain.
If you’re wondering why this blog has been so quiet in recent months, that’s because I’m writing daily about Earth, space, and planetary sciences for io9!
