When you become a member of the GSNZ you will be joining the largest community of geoscientists in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Our strength lies in our members and the diversity and experience they bring to our Society with their backgrounds in education, CRIs, local authorities and consultancies.
Through your membership you will have access to a network of international colleagues with a range of skills and knowledge to assist you in your career.



GSNZ member Oliver McLeod, a University of Waikato PhD student, has produced a full-colour, large-format (A0) 1:30,000 geological map, revealing for the first time details of the geology of the North Island’s largest basaltic volcano—Pirongia.
The map is accompanied by a book detailing the geology and eruptive history of Pirongia. The high quality of production and excellent new research upon which the map and book are based will make it the “go-to” reference for Pirongia for many years to come.

The programme will include the latest research on last year’s Whakaari eruption and the rapid developments that have been made in delivering geoscience teaching online as a result of the COVID pandemic.

Sessions will also showcase the most recent research on the active tectonics of New Zealand, the climate record, New Zealand’s marine environment today and in the past, and the glaciology of Antarctica and New Zealand, and bring together scientists, policy makers and practitioners to discuss how to improve risk and hazard outcomes for New Zealand society.
