Metamorphic Studies Group


 The Metamorphic Studies Group is a joint special interest group of the Geological Society (Registered Charity no. 210161) and the Mineralogical Society (Registered Charity no. 233706), who provide joint funding.

The Group aims to promote the study of metamorphism, metamorphic geology and metamorphic geochronology at all scales, from the molecular to the mountain belt.

Membership is open to members of either Society. Non-members are welcome to attend meetings, but may occasionally incur extra registration fees. The Group has representatives in almost every university Earth Sciences department in the UK, as well as many in Ireland and some in other European countries.

The Group holds an annual Research in Progress meeting, usually in March, at which contributions from postgraduate students are particularly encouraged. Other presentations of recent or ongoing work from the metamorphic community are also welcome.
