American Geophysical Union
- AGU is an international scientific society of over 35,000 members. Research includes the Earth, oceans, atmosphere, space, and planets. AGU is dedicated to advancing the understanding of the Earth and its environment in space, and making the results available to the public through scholarly publications, meetings (Spring and Fall), and the Internet.
Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists
- Organization of professional earth scientists specialising in the practical application of the principles of physics and mathematics to solve problems in a broad range of geological situations.
British Institutions Reflection Profiling Syndicate (BIRPS)
- Acquires, processes and interprets seismic data from the lithosphere. The data are collected using commercial contractors and are publicly released. Includes current projects and historical achievements.
Canadian Exploration Geophysical Society (KEGS)
- A non-profit organization dedicated to furthering the profession of geophysical practice related to mining, environmental and groundwater activities in Canada.
Canadian Geophysical Union
- Information about the annual meeting, membership and affiliated societies.
Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists
- Promotes the science of geophysics, especially as it applies to exploration, and promotes fellowship and co-operation among those persons interested in geophysical prospecting.
Consortium for Research in Elastic Wave Exploration Seismology
- An applied geophysical research group concentrating on the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of multicomponent seismic data.
Dallas Geophysical Society
- Promotes the science and profession of geophysics, and fosters fellowship and cooperation among all persons interested in geophysics.

European Seismological Commission
- The ESC is a commission of IASPEI, which is associated to IUGG and its aim is to promote seismological studies and projects in Europe, countries bordering the Mediterranean and immediate neighbours; an area from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge to the Urals and the Arctic ocean to northern Africa.
Exploration Geophysics Group
- Research using seismic and ground penetrating radar (GPR) interpretation at the University of Trieste, Italy. Includes a description of practical applications, current projects and software.
Geophysical Association of Ireland
- A forum for technical discussion and exchange on geophysical topics. Includes seminars and lectures, maps and data.
IASPEI - International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior
- Promotes the scientific study of problems related to earthquakes and other seismic sources, the propagation of seismic waves, and the Earth's internal structure, properties, and processes.
Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology Consortium
- IRIS is a university research consortium dedicated to exploring the Earth's interior through the collection and distribution of seismographic data.
Injected Sands Group
- An academic and industry consortium conducting research in outcrop analogs, seismic interpretation and reservoir characterization of sand injectites.
Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP) at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL)
- Promotes and coordinates basic research on the understanding of the origin, structure, and evolution of the Earth, the Solar System, and the Universe.
International Airborne Geophysical Safety Assosiation (IAGSA)
- Promotes the safe operation of helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft on airborne geophysical surveys. The association develops recommended practices, serves as a center for exchange of safety information and as a repository for specialized statistics.
International Seismological Centre

National Strong-Motion Program
- USGS program has the primary Federal responsibility for recording each damaging earthquake in the United States on the ground and in man-made structures in densely urbanized areas to improve public earthquake safety. The program maintains a national cooperative instrumentation network, a national data center, and a supporting strong-motion data analyses and research center in support of this responsibility.
NCAR's Geophysical Statistics Project - GSP
- An institution-wide effort of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) to encourage the application and further development of statistical analysis to the problems faced in the earth sciences.
Permafrost Laboratory - University of Alaska Fairbanks
- Laboratory researching interactions between permafrost dynamics and global climate and comparing changes in permafrost which have taken place in Alaska and Russia during the last century.
Physics and Application of Seismic Emission - PHASE
- Research in the physics of fluid induced microseismicity, to establish physical fundamentals for microseismic monitoring and to further develop the seismicity based reservoir characterization approach.
Seafloor Electromagnetic Methods Consortium
- Develops electromagnetic methods, software and modelling tools for the purpose of offshore petroleum exploration.
