Hello Everyone,

This is to draw your attention towards the 36th International Geological Congress (IGC) being held at New Delhi, India during March 2nd to 8th, 2020. The latest circular is attached and further details about the event can be found at its website (

We would like to highlight the symposium number 12.4 titled ‘Glaciers: Past & Present’ under Theme no. 12, ‘Quaternary Environments: Sedimentation and Landform Evolution’. The topics being covered by the symposium include:

Ø  Understanding glaciations across time and space – finding the missing links.

Ø  Estimation of glacial ice reserves – methods and associated errors.

Ø  Glacier response to climate change and governing factors.

Ø  Glacial and high altitude lakes – processes, status and hazard vulnerability.

Ø  Glacial hydrology – climate change impacts and partitioning of the source components.

The abstract submission (deadline August 31, 2019) and the Super Early Bird registration (deadline July 31, 2019) for the 36th International Geological Congress are now open and live at the website.

We look forward to welcoming you in India!
