Society for Sedimentary Geology
A Society providing publications, field trips, research, and teaching of sedimentary geology, stratigraphy, and paleontology for the greater geologic community in the Pacific Region and Worldwide
SEPM, the Society for Sedimentary Geology, is an international, not-for-profit organization of geoscientists based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Known formerly as the Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists, the SEPM acronym remains, and the new shortened name, Society for Sedimentary Geology, still reflects a mission of and dedication to disseminating information on sedimentology, stratigraphy, paleontology, hydrogeology, subsurface exploration, sedimentary tectonics, and geologic disasters of the terrestrial and marine realms.
SEPM is subdivided into eight regional sections in North America. The Pacific Section SEPM, based in southern California, is one of the premier geological societies of western North America. It encompasses the Pacific states: California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii, and overlaps with the Rocky Mountain Section SEPM in parts of the Arizona and Nevada. It has grown to become an international society, attracting students and working professionals from Canada, Europe, Asia, and South America.
Please support the Pacific Section, SEPM with a new or renewed membership. Recruit new members by distributing copies of the Membership Form to all who share an interest in sedimentary geology and related fields. The Membership Form is available on this website and is attached to every Society newsletter. Members benefit from discounts on superbly done field-trip guidebooks and special publications that address sedimentologic and stratigraphic aspects of the Pacific region of the United States. The Society Newsletter, Pacific Sedimentologist, highlights Society field trips, publications, conferences, and other news for the calendar year. Digital versions of the newsletter are distributed to members by email only.
