Upcoming Events

Fifth International Conference on Geophysics Engineering (ICEG)

21 Oct - 24 Oct 2019 | Al Ain, UAE

The success of the first four editions of the ICEG is reflected by the number of participants and the great interest shown by and feedback from both local authorities and the international geo-community working with geophysical methods applied to engineering, environmental, archaeological, geotechnical, and forensic problems.
