Near Surface EAGE special interest technical community

Welcome to the new technical community on UAV (Uncrewed Aerial Vehicles)

EAGE is pleased to present its newest Technical Community on UAV (Uncrewed Aerial Vehicles)!

Welcome to a network of members interested in sharing knowledge and developing skills among geoscientists and engineers exploring and working on drone technology, robotics, drone geosciences, terrestrial remote sensing with applications to the areas of natural hazards, geotechnics and site investigations, environmental geosciences, rock outcrop digital imaging & analysis, resource and mining exploration, etc.

Join our Community!

The Technical Community on UAV was officially presented during the opening session of the Near Surface Geoscience Conference & Exhibition 2022. Additionally, during the event’s 3rd Conference on Airborne, Drone and Robotic Geophysics, Alexey Dobrovolskiy (UAV SITC Committee member) participated in the panel discussion “Transitioning from piloted aircrafts to UAVs, what is the state of airborne geophysics?”, addressing the great potential of drones vs helicopters vs ground surveys; the areas of geophysics (applications/methods) best suited for drones now and in the future, as well as what is stopping/slowing us down from using drones today.


Join the community and be part of an environment to network, develop focused initiatives, share technical information and communicate on a global basis. Participate in discussions, circulate news, ideas, and connect with a worldwide network of 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.
