Geological Society of Australia

The Geological Society of Australia (GSA) was established as a non-profit organisation in 1952 to promote, advance and support Earth Sciences in Australia.

The Society's members come from a variety of Earth Science disciplines, including geologists, geophysicists, geochemists, palaeontologists, geotechnical and engineering geologists, environmental geologists, and associated professions. Members come from the minerals and petroleum industries, government departments, research and educational institutions and consultancy groups.

The GSA is managed by a Governing Council, with an administration office in Sydney. Standing Committees provide an important focus for various national issues

The Society has a Division in each State and Territory, as well as branches in the Hunter Valley and Broken Hill. Regular meetings are held Australia-wide, for members to keep in touch with scientific developments, present the results of their work and contribute to discussions on vocational and scientific topics. Specialist Groups cater to different sectors of the Earth Sciences.

The GSA publishes journals and periodicals for earth scientists and the wider community. The Australian Journal of Earth Sciences (AJES) is the official journal of the Geological Society of Australia, and publishes papers on all aspects of Earth Science. The Australian Geologist (TAG) is GSA's quarterly member magazine which includes technical and special features, society news, conference details, regular reports, book reviews and other items of interest to earth scientists. E-zine and Geoz are GSA electronic Australian Earth Science news services available free to members and non-members.
