Canadian Geophysical Union / Union Géophysique Canadienne.

Welcome to the CGU!


The CGU fosters communication through its annual scientific meeting and its bi-annual newsletter, Elements. The CGU recognizes outstanding contributions to the geophysical sciences by awarding the J. Tuzo Wilson medal annually. Student participation in the scientific meeting is especially encouraged through student travel assistance and prizes for best student paper in various categories. The CGU nominates Canadian representatives for the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics and affiliated societies, and provides its members with reduced rates for journals published by the American Geophysical Union and European Geosciences Union.
