CAAG Czech Association of Geophysicists
CAAG – Czech Association of Geophysicists CAAG was founded in 1992 CAAG is a voluntary, non-profit, professional association of persons working in the field of geophysics in the Czech Republic. On January 2012: about 100 members, mainly professional geophysicists, also students and other geoscientists CAAG is an associated society of EAGE and a member of UGA (Union of Geological Associations – an organization covering all Czech professional geoscientific associations). Through the UGA, CAAG is also a member of EFG (European Federation of Geologists).

CAAG – Czech Association of Geophysicists Main activities are: Liaison between scientific and professional institutions and individuals in the Czech Republic Publication of the results of geophysical investigations and related topics (EGRSE Journal, partly Bulletin of Union of Geological Associations) Organization of symposia, conferences, meetings and lectures in co-operation with other institutions
CAAG – Czech Association of Geophysicists The mission and main aims of CAAG are: to protect the interests of its members and the reputation of geophysics as a whole to maintain and improve the professional level of Czech geophysics to develop the professional skills and ethics of its members to represent Czech geophysics in governmental institutions to take part in legislative and norm-setting activities related to the field of geophysics to cooperate with Czech professional associations representing related geosciences to cooperate with foreign and international organizations with the same interests to develop cooperation with national and foreign geoscientific institutions and companies to provide professional expertise and consultancy to users of applied geophysics to support the members, as well as users of geophysics and other interested groups, by providing up-to-date information, organizing professional events, seminars, and conferences, and enabling publication
CAAG – Czech Association of Geophysicists Since 1994, CAAG has published a scientific journal called EGRSE. Both English and Czech editions (2 per year) are issued alternately. Head of Advisory Board: Assoc.Prof. Dr. Pavel Bláha, DrSc. Editor-in-chief: Dr. František Ryšavý EGRSE – International Journal of Exploration Geophysics, Remote Sensing and Environment
CAAG – Czech Association of Geophysicists CAAG is an experienced organizer of scientific seminars, workshops and conferences. Some of you will remember the successful 9th European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics, Near Surface 2003, organized by CAAG in Prague in September Every year CAAG organizes several workshops and seminars for its members and the wider geological public, inviting outstanding scientists as well as representatives from leading geophysical companies, both from the Czech Republic and abroad. The Ostrava branch of CAAG organizes an annual regional Czech-Slovak-Polish conference on seismology, applied geophysics and geotechnical engineering in Ostrava (in 2012 the 21 st conference was held)
CAAG – Czech Association of Geophysicists The Czech Student Chapter, which is part of the European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers, was founded by students at Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science (www.natur.cuni.cz/~jirku4) Examples of activities: –Geophysical excursion (May 2010, DMT and MND) –Geophysical field training (July 2010, Rejvíz, Czech Republic) –organizing technical lectures and courses –cooperation with high-schools The Student Lecture Tour of EAGE is also organized.
