25th Latin-American Colloquium of Geoscience

18 September, 2019 - 21 September, 2019

On the occasion of the 250th birthday of Alexander von Humboldt and the 100th anniversary of the Universität Hamburg this year, the 25th Latin-American Colloquium of Geoscience will be held at the Universität Hamburg, Germany, from September 18 – 21, 2019.

This biennial conference series has advanced as an important international venue to showcase research activity in Latin-American countries supported by the German Science Foundation, the German Academic Exchange Service, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Germany’s Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, and other funding bodies. Many of the featured collaborative projects are highly interdisciplinary and span from marine geology and geophysics, structural geology, paleontology, mineralogy, sedimentology to paleoclimate studies, geomorphology and the impact of humankind on erosion and climate change. Given the challenges that geoscientists are confronted with today, this Earth System Science format of the conference is timely and helps foment interdisciplinary thinking and the establishment of new alliances. As such the Colloquium follows the Earth System Science approach of Alexander von Humboldt and his efforts to communicate scientific results to the public.
