Hydrogeophysics Technical Community

The Hydrogeophysics community is dedicated to providing a platform for all those working, studying or interested in hydrogeophysics and related disciplines. The community was established in June 2020. Through their dedicated Linked-In group, they encourage a lively exchange of ideas and knowledge. Participation is open to all. 

Interested in being part of the Hydrogeophysics Technical Community? Update your Affiliations. 

Update here   Join in LinkedIn

You are welcome join the community to gain access to an environment to network, contribute to focused events, share technical know-how and career opportunities in the field. The community is led by a dedicated committee but contributions from the wider community are actively encouraged!



The Hydrogeophysics Community is coordinated by a Committee that serves for a period of two years.

The main activity of the Hydrogephysics Community is the parallel Near Surface Conference:
Hydrogeophysics: Contribution to Exploration and Management of Groundwater, Land-Use and Natural Hazards under a Changing Climate. In addition, the community contributes to EAGE journal publications and wider EAGE events, organizes webinars and short meetings for the community, and shares relevant opportunities with members.

Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
