Marine Studies Group

Marine Studies Group logoAims

The Marine Studies Group (MSG) represents the marine geoscience community within the Geological Society. This includes marine geologists and sedimentologists, paleoceanographers, and marine geophysicists.  The MSG provides a focus for all marine Earth scientists and promotes the exchange of ideas within the broader marine geoscience and industry communities. The MSG aims to encourage research in, and teaching and public understanding of, marine geoscience by:

  • arranging scientific meetings and workshops (often held jointly with other science and technology groups) to promote exchange of information about, and in-depth study of topical aspects of the science
  • providing a forum for exchange of ideas within the communities

If you have an idea for a scientific workshop related to marine geoscience, please get in touch!
