The 10th edition of the Swiss Geoscience Meeting focused on the latest advances in research in geosciences. It was held 16th and 17th November 2012 in Bern.
The Institute of Geography and the Institute of Geological Sciences of the University of Bern, as well as the Platform Geosciences of the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) cordially welcomed the 675 participants in the 10th Swiss Geoscience Meeting held on 16th and 17th November 2012 in Bern.
On Friday 16th, keynote presentations focused on that year's theme "Mountains – Up and Down".
On Saturday 17th
About 209 talks were given and 164 posters were presented in 18 scientific symposia that covered the diverse spectrum of current research in geoscience, encompassing the lithosphere, the hydrosphere, the cryosphere, the biosphere, the atmosphere and the anthroposphere.
The SGM offers an ideal environment to also foster informal contacts and discussion between scientists: Such opportunities occur at the Swiss Geoscience Party on Friday evening, or during the poster session on Saturday. Special time slots are allocated to two poster sessions, at which the authors are present.
