Citation Styles in Geology

Geologists use different citation styles depending on their sub-discipline and audience. While GSA is the most broadly used style within geology, different geology professors will expect you to use different citation styles. It is always best to consult them before using a style. Styles that can be used frequently in the field include:

  • Geological Society of America (GSA)
  • American Geophysical Union (AGU)
