Sedimentary Geology, Time, Environment, Paleontology, Paleoclimatology, and Energy
A Voice for Research on the Sedimentary Crust
STEPPE is a new consortium to champion support for sedimentary geology research and education, and to
facilitate development of integrated, multidisciplinary projects
STEPPE supports the community to advance sedimentary geological and paleontological (SGP) science and to improve societal well-being.
STEPPE will accomplish its mission by:
- Focusing efforts on activities that will increase funding for research on the sedimentary crust
- Advancing understanding and communication of the central role that the diverse data extracted from sedimentary rocks play in maintaining the global economy, a healthy environment, and societally critical ecosystem functions
- Articulating priorities for community-level SGP research and observations
- Facilitating interactions within the diverse SGP research community
- Aiding in the development and support of research infrastructure that permits access to untapped funding resources
- Improving access to data, information, and models
- Promoting interdisciplinary education and workforce development that is centered in SGP domains
- Translating scientific advancements into effective tools for energy and climate, and ecosystem management and policy.
- Geological Society of America (GSA)
The Geological Society of America (GSA), founded in 1888, is a scientific society with over 25,000 members from academia, government, and industry in more than 100 countries. Through its meetings, publications, and programs, GSA advances the geosciences, enhances the professional growth of its members, and promotes the geosciences in the service of humankind. GSA encourages cooperative research among earth, life, planetary, and social scientists, fosters public dialogue on geologic issues, and supports all levels of earth-science education.
- Paleontological Society (PS)
The Paleontologial Society (PS), founded in 1908, is a national and international society promoting study of the history of life through geological time. The society publishes professional journals for dissemination of research results, supports student research, and provides outreach to schools for the public understanding of science.
- Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM)
SEPM (Society for Sedimentary Geology), founded in 1926, is an international scientific society. Through its network of international members from academic, industry and governmental careers, the Society is dedicated to the dissemination of scientific information on sedimentology, stratigraphy, paleontology, environmental sciences, marine geology, hydrogeology, and many additional related specialties. The Society supports the science, its members and the public by the publication of scientific journals, sponsoring research conferences.
