David Pollard and Steve Martel are offering a Short Course on Teaching Quantitative Structural Geology for the Geological Society of America Annual Meeting in October 2020. Our objective is to encourage teachers to adopt a more quantitative approach in their undergraduate teaching. The course is FREE (cost $20, but you get a $20 GSA store voucher) and VIRTUAL. The course will be given on Thursday, October 22, 2020. Please contact David Pollard (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions.

In The Spotlight
Cover photograph for the new textbook Structural Geology - A Quantitative Introduction by David Pollard and Steve Martel published by Cambridge University Press in July 2020. This image shows Hutton's unconformity at Siccar Point, Scotland, where vertical Silurian strata are overlain by a basal conglomerate and gently inclined Devonian strata. The angular unconformity represents a 65 Ma hiatus in geologic time.
