Near Surface Geophysics Group

The Near-Surface Geophysics Group (NSGG) was formerly known as the Environmental and Industrial Geophysics Group (EIGG).



To advance, encourage and support the study and practice of near-surface geophysics, predominantly restricted to depths of investigation down to 500m. Areas of application include hydrogeology, engineering, archaeology, forensic science, environmental investigations and monitoring, mineral exploration, hazard assessment and geological mapping.
These aims are achieved by:

  • running a programme of meetings, seminars, workshops, courses and joint meetings with other specialist groups of the Geological Society or with other professional organisations as appropriate to promote the exchange of information and knowledge
  • supporting the professional activities of the geophysical community involved in relevant areas 
  • managing facilities which promote the development of relevant geophysical methods, such as the Geophysics Test Site at Leicester.

NSGG has no membership as all members of the Geological Society may attend NSGG events either at reduced rates or, as in most cases, at no cost.

As the NSGG is a member of the British Geophysics Association, all members of the Royal Astronomical Society receive the same privileges.


Members of the Geological Society receive notification of meetings through Geoscientist, e-mail, the Geological Society’s Web site and by post. Meeting notices are also posted on relevant mailbase lists, so if you want to receive notices as they appear, please register with an appropriate mailbase. 

A general geophysics mailbase list has been set up by the British Geophysical Association at [email protected].

To join this discussion list subscribe via the mailbase web site where additional information about all mailbase lists, archives, guides, and services can also be found.
