Please join us for our next webinar, Geologic Names and Usage: A Guide to Stratigraphic Nomenclature, which will be held on February 24th, 2022 from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST.

This free webinar provides a review of geologic names usage and stratigraphic principles that serves as a foundation for professionals and students to improve geoscience communication among all industries. Our speaker will discuss the importance of consistent stratigraphic nomenclature as a means of effective geologic communication, which has been recognized since the USGS established the Geologic Names Committee (GNC) in 1899 to evaluate and address issues of nomenclature.

Our speaker is Mr. Randall Orndorff, a Research Geologist for the U.S. Geological Survey, Florence Bascom Geoscience Center. He has been a Commissioner representing the USGS on the North American Commission on Stratigraphic Nomenclature since the late 1990’s and is Chair of the USGS Geologic Names Committee.
