This latest edition of the Society’s Bulletin series, Bulletin 65, contains 16 papers, the majority of which were presented at the 30th National Geoscience Conference and Exhibition (NGC 2017). The Conference was held on 9th and 10th October 2017 at Hotel Istana, Kuala Lumpur in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of the Geological Society of Malaysia. Papers dedicated to the anniversary can be found in the two previous issues (bulletins No. 63 & No. 64).
The 16 papers in this current edition cover a wide range of geological topics and it is indeed rewarding for the Society to see contribution from Malaysian and International authors and from Academia and Industry. Such a wide range of authors demonstrates our Bulletin’s cosmopolitan readership. It is particularly encouraging to have received contributions from the Oil & Gas sector, as was the case for the special 50th Anniversary issues, an indication that this sector of our geoscience community remains active despite the recent slowdown. The Society of course welcomes contributions from all geoscience related industries and private consultants.
The Society gratefully acknowledges all the authors from the 16 papers contained here for their valuable contributions. The Society also recognises, and greatly appreciates, the reviewers of all the papers for their thorough and constructive reviews, and the members of the Editorial Subcommittee for their help in the editorial process.
