Outreach and Education
The Outreach and Education sub-Committee is here to support members in sharing and promoting geomorphology as widely as possible outside traditional academic circles and our aim is to improve understanding of geomorphology in society. Find out more about the resources available to you and latest news.
Geomorphological science is applied by academics, governments, charities and private companies to help society and the environment. Find out more about a career as a professional geomorphologist, networking events and information on support available to you through the BSG.
The postgraduate membership is represented through a forum, containing members from various universities across the UK. The forum exists to promote postgraduates’ views within the BSG, disseminate information on geomorphologically-related PhD positions and jobs and provide useful and interesting information on postgraduate issues and research.
