Geology at the Edge is the world’s first community-based geologist-in-residence program. Headquartered out of the Fogo Island Geology Centre in the community of Shoal Bay, Geology at the Edge brings prominent geologists of varying specialties to the Island to perform research, lead immersive geology walks, facilitate youth engagement, and make public presentations.

Fogo Island is a geologist's dream. With hundreds of millions of years of geological history, and as one of the few places in the world where the entirety of a magma chamber can be observed, it is the ideal place to foster meaningful entanglements among local people, guests, and scientists.
