Welcome to the Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Petrology, & Volcanology (MGPV) Division website on GSA's Connected Community.  The Division promotes awareness, teaching, and research in its subject fields, and stimulates discussion about the knowledge, ideas, research results, and problems regarding these fundamental areas of the earth sciences primarily by organizing and sponsoring sessions at the national and sectional meetings.  In addition, the Division sponsors both a Distinguished Geological Career Award and an Early Geological Career Award, student research and travel grants, and a Joint Reception with its Adhering Societies.

Use the navigation tabs on the menu bar above to get more information about the Division and explore the site.  The current and past activities of the  MGPV Division can be found in the "Newsletters" under the "Resources" tab.  For questions for the MGPV Division, contact information for "Officers" is under the "About Us" tab.  The "Contact Us" link at the top left of the page is for questions for GSA. 

The goal of the GSA's Connected Community is to connect members with one another, with the Division, and with GSA as well as present static information.  Once logged in, you can make contacts using the MGPV directory, start a discussion thread, share files, and even blog.  Consider completing your profile page.
