Technical Special Interest Communities


Hydrogeophysics Special Interest Community

The Community

The Hydrogeophysics Special Interest 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 the dedicated Linked-In group we encourage the exchange of ideas and knowledge. Participation is open to all. Those interested can join on the EAGE Hydrogeophysics Special Interest Community.

The group is affiliated to the EAGE Near Surface Geoscience parallel conference series on ‘Hydrogeophysics: Contribution to Exploration and Management of Groundwater, Land-Use and Natural Hazards under a Changing Climate’ which had its first edition at the 2021 Near Surface Geoscience Conference.

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

2020-2022 Committee

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 has presence in EAGE journal publications and wider EAGE events.


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.
