Abstract

Founded in 1970, the Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (ASEG) is a not for profit, learned society of professional earth scientists specialising in the practical application of physics and mathematics to the discovery of new mineral and energy resources and the solution of problems in a broad range of geological situations. The ASEG Mission is to provide an environment for the science of applied geophysics to grow for the benefit of its members and the wider community.

As a Society ASEG are committed to diversity, inclusion and anti-discrimination through respect and appreciation of what makes our membership so varied in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, disability, education and national origin. Members live and work across the world. One of the Society’s strengths is in engaging and connecting professionals from geographically remote and isolated areas, which is shown in our membership figures, publication statistics, as well as our social media and online presence statistics. The Society is exceptionally good at linking technology, people and resources. The conferences the Society organises and runs strive to be free from prejudice of any kind and are places where great innovations are uncovered.
