Swiss Geomorphological Society (SGmS)

The Swiss Geomorphological Society (SGS) invigorates geomorphology in science and practice, through the support of young scientists at universities, and by fostering relationships with associated scientific fields and the public services. Geomorphology has been studied since long ago in an attempt to evaluate nature for the protection and benefit of mankind. Therefore, geomorphology as a scientific discipline and the SGS as a scientific society contribute to an important part to an ecological land-use practice.

The Swiss Geomorphological Society (SGmS) was founded in 1946 by a Geomorphological Working Group at the University of Basel. Today’s 200 members come from a wide range of disciplines, from universities, administration and also from private companies. The SGmS is a member society of the Swiss Academy of Science (SCNAT), of the Swiss Association of Geographers (ASG), and of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG). [more...]
