Welcome!

The Near-Surface Geophysics (NSG) Section of the SEG is a worldwide organization of over 360 scientists from academia, industry, and government, that promotes the rigorous practice of shallow-earth geophysics including engineering, environmental, groundwater, mining, geothermal, and archeological applications. Every year, the NSG Section holds business and technical meetings and hosts several NSG oral and poster sessions at the SEG conference. Many NSG Section members take the lead in organizing special sessions at the SEG conference and special issues in The Leading Edge (TLE) and Geophysics. The NSG Section newsletter, Near-Surface Views, is published every quarter informing members of developments in near-surface geophysics.
