November 18, 2021

Hosted in Austin by the Bureau of Economic Geology and the Austin Geological Society, the recent GeoGulf2021, the 71st Annual Gulf Coast Geoscience Convention, successfully brought together 325 students, industry professionals, researchers, and faculty for a week of interaction and high-quality technical presentations. It was the first major in person geosciences conference held in Central Texas since the onset of the pandemic and provided for streaming participation for those unable to travel. The theme for GeoGulf2021 was “Sustaining Geoscience Through the Energy Transition,” and the conference included topics ranging from oil and gas resources to emerging and new approaches to resources and technologies.

Thirty-one Bureau researchers and staff participated in the conference as speakers, presenters, and hosts. GeoGulf2021 included 17 oral technical presentations and related poster sessions covering geoscience themes relevant to Gulf Coast geology, energy resources, water resources, geohazards, and technology applications. Participants also enjoyed expert panel sessions on shale plays, diversity, careers, and the regulatory landscape. Additionally, they were able to take part in 5 virtual and live field trips and 4 short courses.

Bureau of Economic Geology contributions to GeoGulf2021 were extensive, and those who attended were highly complimentary of the quality and breadth of the program and related activities.
