34th Annual Convention and Seminar on Exploration Geophysics

Association of Exploration Geophysicists organized its 34th Annual Convention and Seminar on Exploration Geophysics during 5-7 October 2012 at Hyderabad,India. The Special theme of this seminar was Geophysical Exploration for Energy Security and Societal Development. The seminar was sponsored and Co-Sponsored by by Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd.,Oil India Ltd., Directorate General of Hydrocarbons, and Reliance Industries Ltd., and Supported by Gas Authority of India Ltd., De Beers, Geological Survey of India and CSIR and also supported by many government and private organisations engaged in geoscientific activities in India. This seminar is of immense value to professional geoscientists, industrial planners, investors, engineering geologists and research scholars of geosciences. The delegates at the seminar shared a comprehensive review of the geological, geophysical, engineering and educational challenges. A number of renowned geoscientists from India and abroad presented state of art practices in geosciences. This was a unique opportunity to enjoy a broad cross-section of geology, geophysics and related technology in the technical sessions, poster sessions, exhibition and field trips.

Coinciding with the seminar, the Department of Science and Technology (DST), New Delhi sponsored Geophysical Education and Employment Careers was organised on 5th October, 2012.
