The Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS) is an applied scientific organization founded in 1992.


to promote the science of geophysics especially as it is applied to environmental and engineering problems; to foster common scientific interests of geophysicists and their colleagues in other related sciences and engineering; to maintain a high professional standing among its members; and to promote fellowship and cooperation among persons interested in the science.

EEGS is incorporated in the State of Colorado as a not-for-profit corporation and has approximately 400 members. The society's primary activity is its annual Symposium on the Application of Geophysics to Engineering and Environmental Problems (SAGEEP). In addition, it develops and distributes a peer-reviewed scientific journal, Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics, as well as a newsmagazine, FastTIMES.  

SAGEEP pre-dates EEGS and is held in the late winter or early spring. Attendance over the last several years averages about 350. SAGEEP is internationally recognized as the leading conference on the practical application of shallow geophysics. It occurs over a 5-day period, with approximately 150 oral and poster presentations, several educational workshops, numerous vendor presentations, and a commercial exhibition. A set of proceedings, comprised of technical papers presented at the conference, is produced. 

The JEEG is published quarterly and is accessible online to the EEGS membership and academic libraries. Articles from recent issues (2005 forward) are available online to members of subscribing institutions through GeoScienceWorld (www.geoscienceworld.org).  FastTIMES is digitally produced and is available online through the society's web page.

EEGS maintains close ties with the near surface geophysics affiliated society agreements with several international professional societies.  


EEGS is the premier society championing the development and appropriate use of environmental and engineering geophysics.
