The call for papers for the 2013 joint Arizona Geological Society - New Mexico Geological Society Fall Field Conference is now out. This traveling field conference will shadow old Route 66 from Flagstaff, Arizona to Grants, New Mexico! The pre-conference field trip will take place at the Grand Canyon. Day 1 will include stops at S-P and Sunset Craters near Flagstaff before we continue on to Meteor Crater. Day 2 will focus on the geology, archeology and other features of Petrified Forest National Park. Day 3 will conclude the conference at Mount Taylor and there will be an optional field trip to the Rio Puerco after the conference.
Highlights of this conference will include geology of the Grand Canyon
area and the San Francisco volcanic field near Flagstaff, as well as
stratigraphy, paleontology, paleomagnetism, archeology
and mining endeavors in the Petrified Forest Park area and an update on
the volcanic stratigraphy of Mount Taylor. The organizers encourage submissions of
papers related to geology along the entire Route 66 corridor from
Williams, Arizona to Grants, New Mexico.
Papers for the 2013 Guidebook will be due by March 1st, 2013 to
co-organizers Steve Semken (Arizona State University) or Kate Zeigler
(NM Highlands University). Please note they must be reviewed prior to
submittal to a co-organizer. Please send a co-organizer
a brief email with a draft title for your paper so we can better
identify gaps in our program.
