EEGS (Environmental & Engineering Geophysical Society )
The EEGS is an applied scientific organization founded in 1992. EEGS is a not-for-profit corporation and has approximately 650 members. Its mission is: to promote the science of geophysics especially as it is applied to environmental and engineering problems, to foster common scientific interests of geophysicists and their colleagues in other related sciences and engineering, to maintain a high professional standing among its members, and to promote fellowship and cooperation among persons interested in the science.
The society's primary activity is its annual meeting, which is known as the Symposium on the Application of Geophysics to Engineering and Environmental Problems (SAGEEP), held in the late winter or early spring. Attendance over the last several years averages about 350. SAGEEP is internationally recognized as the leading conference on the practical application of shallow geophysics. It occurs over a 5-day period, with approximately 150 oral and poster presentations, several educational workshops, numerous vendor presentations, and a commercial exhibition. A set of proceedings, comprised of technical papers presented at the conference is distributed. SAGEEP pre-dates EEGS, and proceedings exist for every year starting with 1988.
Furthermore, the EEGS distributes a newsletter and a peer-reviewed scientific journal, Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG), which is published quarterly and distributed via mail to the EEGS membership and academic libraries. In addition, the EEGS publishes, markets, and distributes books and CD-ROMs on the application and use of geophysical technologies.
The EAGE and EEGS have a long history of exchanging the best papers from each other's annual near surface conference. All papers from the SAGEEP events as well as the JEEG articles are published on EarthDoc and are accessible for both EAGE and EEGS members.List all paper from EEGS
