Swiss Society of Mineralogy and Petrology
The Swiss Society of Mineralogy and Petrology (SSMP) was founded in 1924 by professionals from academia and industry and by amateurs to promote knowledge in the fields of mineralogy, petrology, and geochemistry and to disseminate it to the scientific and public communities. The society co-organizes the annual Swiss Geoscience Meeting and publishes the Swiss Journal of Geosciences jointly with the national geological and paleontological societies.
The SSMP was a participating member of Elements from 2009-2020.
The SSMP, along with other scientific societies in Switzerland, merged with the Swiss Geological Society (SGG-SGS). The Swiss Geological Society joined Elements in 2021.
