capability for application of digital methods in geophysical, geochemical and
geological mapping at the national geoscientific institutions of India –
Indigeo,” and also has been an implementing agency of a DST sponsored project:

Geoscientific Data to Aid Deep Continental Studies in India”.
and promote scientific research ONGC has come together with AEG to sponsor two
ONGC-AEG Awards to be given annually to two best research works in the fields
of Exploration and Development of Geophysics. AEG, which supports advancements
and research into economic geology in the country, has come together with
DeBeers India Pvt. Ltd. and has started DeBeers-AEG Fellowship, Prof. V. L. S.
Bhimasankaram Award to study Geophysical properties of Indian Kimberlites and
Association of Exploration Geophysicists intends to integrate geosciences for
Research, Exploration and Development aspects, as the future is based on
Integration of all the Geosciences together and not on any one individual
science. It also plans to serve the geoscientific community as a platform for
the exchange and enhancement of Knowledge across the various sections of people
involved with the Geosciences.
