GeoDaze is a student-run symposium organized by the Department of Geosciences at the University of Arizona. Run by the generosity of private donations, the symposium allows graduate and undergraduate students an opportunity to showcase their research. Every year, the symposium covers a wide variety of topics: paleoclimatology, seismology, dendrochronology, isotope geochemistry, and economic and structural geology, to name a few. But, GeoDaze is not simply an intradepartmental event. Guests join us each year from governmental and private agencies and each year a distinguished scientist is asked to be the conference's keynote speaker.
Registration for the 50th GeoDaze 2022 is now open!!! Register today by filling out the form linked here as well as on the GeoDaze 2022 website homepage.
This year is extra special as we are celebrating the 50th year of GeoDaze - the annual Department of Geosciences symposium organized by students since 1972. This year we will have both in person and virtual formats to make sure everyone is comfortable. The dates are March 23rd-24th and the in person portion will take place at ENR2. To celebrate the extra special 50th GeoDaze we are inviting two distinguished keynote speakers. Dr. Gabriella Farfan, the Gem and Mineral Curator at the Smithsonian National Museum Natural History will kick off the meeting on March 23rd and Historical Geologist Dr. Sid Hemming of Columbia University will close out the meeting on March 24th.
