SEPM Science Position Statements

SEPM Science Position Statements

SEPM - Society for Sedimentary Geology has created a process to allow its membership to propose position statements that are based on major aspects of sedimentary geoscience. These statements must rely solely on the science involved. The process as approved by SEPM Council in 2019 begins with a proposed position statement which is first reviewed by Council for its appropriateness and then, if accepted, assigned to an ad hoc committee to review and draft a succinct position statement on the topic. That draft is put out for SEPM member comments and the revised draft is reported to Council, who has the final approval or editing authority. All approved statements are published on the SEPM website.

SEPM Position Statement - Evolution

Members of the SEPM Council recently formed a committee to develop a formal Position Statement on behalf of the organization around the topic of evolution. Per SEPM's formal adoption process, this position statement must be made publicly available for comment by members for no less than 6 weeks. Log in to your member profile and provide your comments, feedback and thoughts on this piece via our blog, linked above. Once the 6 week period closes [June 30, 2021], the committee will review member comments and revise the statement as needed. The position will then be reviewed by the SEPM Council for a final decision for adoption and posting online as SEPM's official position on the topic.

Note that the first review of proposed position statements by SEPM is done on a quarterly basis.
