The Society was founded in 1807 as the Geological Society of London and is the oldest geological society in the world.
It received its Royal Charter in 1825 for the purpose of 'investigating the mineral structure of the Earth'. The Society
is Britain's national society for geology with a membership of 8000. It has countrywide coverage and approximately
1000 members reside overseas. The Society is responsible for all aspects of the geological sciences including
professional matters. The Society has its own publishing house, which produces the Society's international journals,
books and maps, and which acts as the European distributor for publications of the American Association of Petroleum
Geologists, SEPM and the Geological Society of America.
Fellowship is open to those holding a recognized honours degree in geology or cognate subject and who have at least
two years' relevant postgraduate experience, or who have not less than six years' experience in geology or a cognate
subject. A Fellow who has not less than five years' relevant postgraduate experience in the practice of geology may
apply for validation and, subject to approval, may be able to use the designatory letters C Geol (Chartered Geologist).
Further information about the Society is available from the Membership Manager, The Geological Society,
Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1V 0JU, UK. The Society is a Registered Charity, No. 210161
