The aims of the British Geophysical Association are to promote the subject of geophysics, and particularly to strengthen the relationship between geology and geophysics in the UK, by holding meetings and courses, by encouraging the publication of the results of research, and by such other means as are deemed appropriate to an Association by the parent Societies.
Near Surface Geophysics Group Read about NSGG
Near Surface Geophysics Group (UK) Group Aims: To advance, encourage and support the study and practice of near-surface geophysics, predominantly restricted to depths of investigation down to 500m.
Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists Read about CSEG
The Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists, CSEG was established in 1949, and today hosts approximately 1,800 members. An estimated 60% of our members are geophysicists actively involved in hydrocarbon exploration. Others are academics, geologists, technical specialists, field specialists and other interested industry personnel. The objective of the Society is to promote the science of geophysics, especially as it applies to exploration, and to promote fellowship and co-operation among those persons interested in geophysical prospecting. The CSEG is associated, as a local section, with the SEG - Society of Exploration Geophysicists - headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma- Activities of the CSEG are primarily directed toward the exchange of technical information.
Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta Read about APEGA
Created in 1920, The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) regulates the practices of engineering and geoscience in Alberta on behalf of the Government of Alberta through the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act. Applicants and companies that meet APEGA's standards for ethical, professional, and technical competency earn the right to practise and use reserved titles and designations.
the Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists Read about ASEG
The Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists, ASEG, is a non-profit company founded in 1970. (ASEG) is a learned society of approximately 1,200 members, embracing professional earth scientists specializing in the practical application of the principles of physics and mathemat-ics to solve problems in a broad range of geological situations. Its aims are: to promote the science of geophysics, and specifically exploration geophysics, throughout Australia; to foster fellowship and co-operation between geophysicists; to encourage closer understanding and cooperation with other earth scientists; to assist in design and teaching of courses in geophysics and to sponsor student sections where appropriate.

American Geophysical Union Read about AGU
American Geophysical Union AGUs strategic plan sets the direction for the organization and drives the work of the Board, Council, other volunteers and staff. The strategic plan was developed by members and approved in 2010. Each Board and Council agenda item is linked to the strategic plan, and the strategic plan is supported by AGUs annual budget and operating plan approved by the Board of Directors. AGUs strategic plan includes our mission and core values, our vision and envisioned future, and four strategic goals, supported by 28 strategic objectives. In 2010, member and staff leaders identified the eight top priority objectives of the plan. Each year, AGU publishes an annual report outlining how the strategic plan is being implemented.
Canadian Geophysical Union Read about CGU
The Canadian Geophysical Union On October 24, 1945, the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) convened the first meeting of an Associate Committee to advise it on the needs of geophysics, with J. Tuzo Wilson as the Committee Chair. In 1946, this committee was amalgamated with the Canadian Committee for the IUGG to form the Associate Committee of Geodesy and Geophysics (ACGG) of the NRC, with activities of Canadian geophysicists coordinated by a number of ACGG subcommittees. In 1974, the ACGG was replaced by a professional society called The Canadian Geophysical Union, a joined Division of the Geological Association of Canada (GAC) and the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP); J.T. Wilson was its first president. The Canadian Geophysical Union became an inde-pendent organization in 1988, but geophysicists can still join us through CAP or the Geophys-ics Division of GAC.
