Project Description


Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists


Founded in 1970, the ASEG is a learned society of professional earth scientists specializing in the practical application of the principles of physics, mathematics and geology to solve real life problems in a complex and changing world. The ASEG’s mission is to promote geophysics, especially as it is applied to mineral and energy discovery, geotechnical and near surface studies and hazard mitigation.

The ASEG’s bimonthly journal, Exploration Geophysics, is a peer-reviewed forum for scientific papers from members of the ASEG and their partner societies, Society of Exploration Geophysicists of Japan (SEGJ) and Korean Society of Earth and Exploration Geophysicists (KSEG).  The journal publishes ground-breaking research in exploration and applied geophysics, recording the extraordinary growth and achievements in science breakthroughs, innovations, new technologies, practices and discoveries in this field for almost 50 years.  Preview, our highly-regarded magazine also published bimonthly, contains the latest news, commentaries, easy-to-read reviews, and case studies for exploration geophysicists around the world.

The ASEG brings together more than 1000 members from Australia and around the world through its publications, technical conferences, exhibitions and training courses (visit for more information).
