Anniversaries in Geo-History

The INHIGEO Anniversary series of concise and popular papers on diverse aspects of the History of the Geological Sciences is published online in the IUGS E-Bulletin.

 

At the invitation of the IUGS INHIGEO established this series in 2018 for short "Anniversary” articles that focus on a particular event, person, theory or pivotal publication in the Geological Sciences related to a certain year, sometimes down to the actual month, hence the overall title “Anniversaries.”

A short outline of the topic in question is published in the IUGS E-Bulletin with a permanent link to the complete article archived on the Anniversaries page on the INHIGEO Website. The series has been well received and forms an important component of the INHIGEO commission’s outreach activities.

 

If you are interested in submitting contributions for this series, please contact the INHIGEO Publications and Outreach Coordinator.

Invitation

Our Mission

The primary objective of the INHIGEO involves promoting studies in the history of geological disciplines. In so doing,the Commission endeavours to stimulate and coordinate the activities of regional, national, and international organizations having shared purposes. The Commission also works to foster the publication of individual and collective works that illuminate the history of the geological sciences.

 

INHIGEO achieves its objective by sponsoring a major annual symposium with associated field activities. It also promotes publication of individual and collective works on the history of geology and issues a substantial "Annual Record" that details historical research into earth sciences worldwide, publicises other pertinent historical activities and provides scholarly reviews of recent literature on the subject.
