Asia Oceania Geosciences Society 16th Annual Meeting


Tags: Astronomy

Time: 28 July - 02 August 2019 -

Location: Singapore

The Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) was established in 2003 to promote geosciences and its application for the benefit of humanity, specifically in Asia and Oceania, and with an overarching approach to global issues.

The Asia Oceania region is particularly vulnerable to natural hazards, accounting for almost 80% human lives lost globally. The AOGS is deeply involved in addressing hazard-related issues through improving our understanding of the genesis of hazards through scientific, social, and technical approaches.

The AOGS holds annual conventions providing a unique opportunity of exchanging scientific knowledge and discussion to address important geo-scientific issues among academia, research institution, and the public.

Recognizing the need for global collaboration, the AOGS has developed good cooperation with other international geo-science societies and unions such as the European Geosciences Union (EGU), American Geophysical Union (AGU), International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), Japan Geo-science Union (JpGU), and Science Council of Asia (SCA).

SETI Institute research scientist Meng Jin will give a talk: Global Magnetohydrodynamics Simulation of EUV Waves and Shocks from the X8.2 Eruptive Flare on 2019 September 10.
