Welcome to the NAMS Home Page


NAMS is the North American Micropaleontology Section of the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM). The purpose of the Section is to promote all aspects of micropaleontology through application, research and education dealing with morphology, biostratigraphy, ecology/paleoecology, and geologic history of all groups of microfossils occurring in the stratigraphic record.

The field of micropaleontology covers a diverse array of microfossils groups, including foraminifera, ostracodes, nannofossils, palynonmorphs, radiolaria, diatoms, and silicoflagellates. NAMS serves as a center point for these many fields of study and provides a venue for exchange of information among micropaleontologists in academia, industry, and government.

NAMS is the sponsor of the Marine Micropaleontology Research Group, a formal research group within SEPM which reports to the SEPM research committee. Membership is only $10 annually, and $5 for students.
