Caribbean Geological Conference Series


The Caribbean Geological Conference Series began in 1955 and was originally meant to be a gathering of geologists of the then British ruled territories. Just prior to the first meeting in Antigua, delegates from Puerto Rico, French Guiana and the US were added. Although the meeting was small - there were only 37 delegates - it was such a success that it was decided to hold a larger meeting in Puerto Rico in 1959.

From that time the meetings have been held every three years in different locations, so that attendees have the opportunity of viewing the geology of each location via the field excursions, that are an integral part of each conference.
