Technical Communities

Mineral Exploration Geophysics

The Mineral Exploration Geophysics (MEG) Community is a network of dedicated EAGE members, aiming to bring together professionals, researchers, academia and students with a professional focus on the topic. Participation is open to all.

The group is affiliated to the EAGE Near Surface Geoscience parallel conference series ‘Geophysics for Mineral Exploration and Mining’ and operates to provide a home outside of the conference series. Within the group, community members are encouraged to share relevant news updates, career development, opportunities for collaborative projects and discussions on the latest scientific developments.

Join in LinkedIn

Join the Mineral Exploration Geophysics Community to be part of an environment to network, manage events, share technical information and otherwise reach out and communicate on a global basis. You can participate in discussions, circulate news and ideas, and discover all opportunities offered by EAGE, including the possibility of becoming a reviewer, co-chairing technical sessions, participating in the organization of future events on decarbonization and energy transition, and connecting with a worldwide network of members. The network is open to all EAGE members active in these fields or interested in learning more.



The MEG community is coordinated by a Committee that serves for a period of two years.

The main activity of the Mineral Exploration Geophysics Community is the parallel Near Surface Conference:
Geophysics for Mineral Exploration and Mining‘. 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.


Update your affiliations

Connecting with professionals who share similar interests – such as the members of the Mineral Exploration Geophysics Community or the Near Surface Geoscience Circle – is key in promoting innovation and technical progress. That’s why we invite you to update your EAGE affiliations to Local Chapters, Circles, Technical and Special Interest Communities. This will help you stay connected with fellow members and ensure our offerings meet your needs.

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.
