Welcome to the homepage of the Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU), dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of geophysical research.
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.
It's that time of year again. Along with Christmas, it's time to renew your CGU Membership, sign up as new member, or give a membership as a Christmas gift! This is a great way to be part of the geophysical community in Canada, share your work and network with fellow scientists at the annual conference, or kickstart your career as an up and coming young scientist.
