35th IAS Meeting of Sedimentology held in Prague for the first time!

The 35th IAS (International Association of Sedimentologists)  annual meeting will be held in the Czech Republic for the first time in the entire IAS history. The Institute of Geology of the CAS participates in the organization. The meeting will be held in June 23–25, 2020 in Vienna House Diplomat Prague hotel.  The total number of participants is expected between 700–1 000 including leading scientists in the field of  sedimentology.  Key themes and special sessions cover different processes leading to the origin of sedimentary rocks. Modern approaches and methods will be discussed which study sedimentary rocks as archives recording environmental changes in geological past, however, with implications for the present. All information is available at the Meeting website.

Berriasian Working Group Meeting 2018 organized by the Institute of Geology CAS, v.v.i.

An international meeting of scientists interested in dating of rocks in the Jurassic/Cretaceous boundary interval (Berriasian Working Group Meeting) was organized by Petr Schnabl, the head of the Laboratory of Palaeomagnetism, in May 2018. The conference was held at Kroměříž and was attended by another 5 scientists of the Institute of Geology of the Czech Academy of Sciences, colleagues from Charles University, Czech Geological Survey, Technical University in Ostrava and scientists from Slovakia, Poland, United Kingdom, France, Bulgaria, Hungary and China. This time interval is highly topical because the Jurassic/Cretaceous boundary is the last boundary between two stratigraphic systems which has not been conclusively defined by a stratotype of the International Commission on Stratigraphy yet. The latest results of integrated research were presented and fieldtrips were made to important sites in the Czech Republic (Kurovice Quarry and Štramberk). For photo gallery click here.
