Biogeosciences News and Events

Logo Competition

The CGU Biogeosciences section is soliciting submissions from students for ideas for a new section logo. Please email the BGS Secretary with a pdf file of your logo creation before the end of November 2015. We are looking for a colourful logo with elements that encompass the interdisciplinary biological, geological, geographical, and chemical aspects that weave together into Biogeosciences. The word “Biogeosciences” could, but does not have to, appear on the logo. The winning submission will be used in all section promotion materials, including the section web presence, and the author of the submission will receive a cash prize of $100.
