2019 Geosciences Student Research Symposium

Geosciences Student Research Symposium (GSRS) is a 24-year-old tradition in the Department of Geosciences. This two-day conference in February provides both undergraduate and graduate students a platform to present their research. GSRS allows students to develop effective scientific communication skills through the preparation of an oral or poster presentation while receiving feedback from faculty and their peers on their work. This promotes student growth as scientists in a collegial environment. Our research spans the areas of: hazards and resources (earthquakes & tsunamis), the evolution of our planet (mountain ranges, volcanoes, & sedimentary rocks), the environment (environmental nanoscience & hydrology), and much more!


GSRS is entirely organized by graduate students, helping students gain leadership, team building, and mentoring skills by serving on the GSRS Committee.

The GSRS Workshop Series, now in its second year, is a series of monthly lectures and Q&A sessions leading up to GSRS where faculty, postdocs, and senior graduate students offer advice on abstract writing, scientific presentations, and poster making. This ensures that undergraduate and graduate students are prepared to present their work at a scientific conference.

GSRS is open to the general public and is attended by other departments and intellectuals. In this manner, GSRS can be the jumping off point for interdisciplinary research collaborations in the department and in the wider university. Ultimately, GSRS helps prepare students for geoscience careers in today’s society by teaching students to effectively communicate technical results and their significance to a broad audience.
