Welcome to the Romanian Society of Applied Geophysics (SGAR) webpage!
The Romanian Society of Applied Geophysics (SGAR) activity is focused on sustaining geophysical research and in training geophysicists for their role in climate-action plans, international security, and peacekeeping operations as well as to contribute to fulfilling UN-Sustainable Development Goals.
Main Event of 2024
ILP & Geoscience 2022 – International Symposium
At SGAR we are always exploring new frontiers in using geophysics, learning, and transferring the knowledge. Our mission is to implicate even more, to prepare geophysicists for their role in climate-action plans, international security, and peacekeeping operations as well as to contribute to fulfilling UN-Sustainable Development Goals.
New challenges are arising for society in general, which is forced nowadays to take more actions to prevent natural phenomena from turning into hazards, provide resources for a grown society, and limit the impact on the environment of hazards triggered by mankind’s actions. As geophysicists, we seldom find ourselves at the core of the actions for supporting the UN-Sustainable Development Goals, as our studies are conceived for giving the much-needed information of locating and responsible exploration of earth’s resources, to reduce the vulnerability of communities to natural hazards or poor industry practices (induced seismicity, pollution, radioactive contamination, built infrastructure with low capacity to withstand the geo-risks), to ensure safe working conditions and to provide early-warning information that can contribute to the readiness of communities when facing the environmental problems and hazards that can affect the soil, groundwater, geological layers and supported systems.
So, our mission is important! You, as a geoscientist or engineer in the field of geosciences, or student in the earth sciences are important! To SGAR and the Community!

Organizer of geoscientific events
SGAR organizes the following activities for its members: Events (conferences, exhibitions, workshops), Publications (SGAR Library), Educational Programs (short courses, workshops, lectures), and Field activities and facilitates meetings between stakeholders in the field of applied geophysics. Find out more about our events or contact us for co-organizing. Get access to our events by becoming a member of SGAR and get the chance to engage with other members on our activities.
Technical advice on geophysical surveys Technical reviews of surveys and new project designs Undertaking geophysical surveys Data processing, Interpretation & Reporting Consultancy and Training in geophysical surveys Support of local community in environmental problems
Support of Young Geoscientists
Supporting the development of young scientists, students, and Ph.D. students has been the main objective of our association since its beginning, providing the frame for Training in geophysical surveys, Data processing & Interpretation as well as sustaining their research activity by offering financial awards. Students in geophysics can Join SGAR for more opportunities to develop their careers in geophysics.
