2022 Fall Field Conference: Geology of the Socorro Region III
September 29 - October 1, 2022

There is no denying that the geology in the Socorro region is fantastic, even if it may seem familiar to those of us who live here, and well-worth a third NMGS visit. The 2022 Fall Field Conference will showcase new mapping, geochronology, and other geologic studies that have occurred in the Socorro region since the 1983 Fall Field Conference. The array of rocks seen here include Proterozoic granites-gneisses, a complete Pennsylvanian-Permian section, Santa Fe Group deposits from all stages of rift deposition, and an intriguing set of post-Santa Fe Group terraces. Structures associated with the Laramide orogeny and rifting are also nicely exposed in the Socorro area.
