Conference Call for Papers
The 2022 GSA Cordilleran and Rocky Mountain Joint Section Meeting will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, for a Rendezvous at the Geologic Crossroads of the Cordillera, Great Basin, and Colorado Plateau. The meeting will be held at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus, at the Student Union located at 4505 S. Maryland Pkwy, Las Vegas, NV, 89154. This location provides easy access to museums, restaurants, shopping, and the neon metropolis of the Las Vegas strip. Las Vegas is pleasantly warm and dry in March, and it’s a perfect time to explore the city, as well as the world-class geology in nearby Red Rock Canyon Nation Conservation Area, Valley of Fire State Park, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, the Mojave Preserve, and Death Valley National Park. A diverse array of technical sessions, field trips, and short courses will highlight the exceptional regional geology, including the Neoproterozoic–Paleozoic rift to passive margin stratigraphy; Mesozoic arc and retroarc histories and processes; and the magmatic, sedimentologic, and tectonic record of large magnitude Cenozoic extension. Additionally, current concerns of arid zone hydrogeology, drought science and paleoclimatology, and emerging technologies and mining demands for low CO2 energy solutions will be featured. Please join us in Las Vegas for all that a spring in-person meeting in the Mojave Desert has to offer!
