    46th INHIGEO Symposium

    The International Commission on the History of Geological Sciences (INHIGEO) promotes ongoing research into the history of the earth sciences.  It was founded in 1967 and currently has approx. 300 members from 57 countries.

    INHIGEO has been established by the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) and is also affiliated with the International Union of the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IUHPS).

    INHIGEO achieves its objective by sponsoring a major annual symposium with associated field activities. It also promotes publication of individual and collective works on the history of geology and issues a substantial Annual Record that details historical research into earth sciences worldwide, publicises other pertinent historical activities and provides scholarly reviews of recent literature on the subject.

In so doing,the Commission endeavours to stimulate and coordinate the activities of regional, national, and international organizations having shared purposes. The Commission also works to foster the publication of individual and collective works that illuminate the history of the geological sciences.
