IMPORTANT VISA INFORMATION about international travel to meetings in Canada. [Rev. 20 Apr 04]

THE 2004 JOINT ASSEMBLY, a partnership between CGU, AGU, SEG and EEGS, is being held in Montreal, Canada. The Program Committee is developing a Union-wide science program in the traditional AGU form and spirit. In addition, sessions related to the uses or applications of the geophysical sciences will be provided. Check this site regularly for updates on the science program and other meeting related activities.

Montreal—beautiful, exciting, and friendly. Montreal is a bustling metropolis combining modern facilities and attractions with Old World charm. The French ambiance is all around you, and you quickly feel at home in this friendly cosmopolitan city. Set in spectacular surroundings between Mount Royal and the St. Lawrence River, the lively downtown area and historic Old Montreal are alive with museums and attractions, major festivals, exquisite dining, fashionable shops and renowned nightlife.

Abstract submissions are closed.

•  After 23 April 2004: register on-site for 2004 Joint Assembly.


AGU is an international scientific society of over 41,000 members that advances the understanding of Earth and atmospheric, oceanic, hydrologic, space and planetary sciences. AGU is dedicated to fostering high-quality scientific research, disseminating the results of that research, enhancing educational opportunities in science, and encouraging international cooperation in geophysics.

AGU's mission is to promote the scientific study of Earth and its environment in space and to disseminate the results to the public; promote cooperation among scientific organizations involved in geophysics and related disciplines; initiate and participate in geophysical research programs; and advance the various geophysical disciplines through scientific discussion, publication, and dissemination of information. AGU now stands as a leader in the increasingly interdisciplinary global endeavor that encompasses the geophysical sciences.

Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU) began as a society dedicated to the scientific study of the solid earth and has evolved into one that is concerned with all aspects of the physical study of Earth and its space environment, including the Sun and solar system. CGU's goals are to advance and promote the scientific study of Earth and its environment in space and to serve as a national focus for the geophysical sciences in Canada; foster cooperation between the Canadian geophysical community and other national and international scientific organizations; encourage communication through the organization and sponsorship of conferences and the publication of scientific results; and promote integration of geophysical knowledge with that of other sciences concerned with the improvement of life on Earth.

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) promotes the science of geophysics and the education of exploration geophysicists. The Society fosters the expert and ethical practice of geophysics in the exploration and development of natural resources, in characterizing the near-surface, and in mitigating earth hazards.

The Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS) is the premier society championing the development and appropriate use of environmental and engineering geophysics.
