Welcome to the homepage of the Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU), dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of geophysical research.


The 2018 Joint Meeting website is now online and is located at https://meeting2018.cgu-ugc.ca/. Accommodation has been already been posted and online registration is now open. Abstract submissions are now closed.

The Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU) welcomes expressions of interest for the newly-created position of Volunteer Coordinator. Click here for more details.

Dr. John Pomeroy received the J. Tuzo Wilson Award at last year's meeting, while Dr. Yajing Liu and Dr. Carl Mitchell were jointly awarded the CGU Young Scientist Award.

We represent the interests of Canadian geoscientists through annual scientific meetings, awards programs, interactions with funding agencies, and advocating for the role of science in society and policy-making. We particularly encourage student participation through travel grants to the annual meeting, and an extensive series of student awards.

Earth Sciences are key to Canada’s prosperity, safety, sustainability, and sovereignty. Understanding Earth Science processes forms the basis of efficient and effective management of Earth’s resources, and allows us to reduce risk and hazards from more devastating Earth system processes.

Our goal is to advance and promote the scientific study of Earth and its environment, and serve as a national focus for the geophysical sciences in Canada.
We strongly encourage all forms of communication through the organization and sponsorship of conferences and the publication and dissemination of scientific results.
We aim to foster cooperation between the Canadian geophysical community, local, national and international scientific organizations, as well as provincial and federal policy makers.
Ultimately, we promote integration of geophysical knowledge with that of other sciences concerned with the improvement of life on Earth.
