Welcome to SAGES

SAGES pools world-leading expertise in geoscience and environmental science from across Scotland’s research base, creating an multi-disciplinary alliance at the forefront of earth and environmental research.

SAGES was saddened to hear of the sudden death of Professor Laurence Mee, Director of SAMS. Laurence was one of the most active and energetic contributors to SAGES and was hugely supportive of pooling and of collaborations across the sector. Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family, friends and colleagues.
