AOGS 12th Annual Meeting
2 to 7 Aug, 2015

Introduction to AOGS

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.

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

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 public.

Recognizing the need of global collaboration, AOGS has developed good co-operation 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).

About AOGS 2015

This year, AOGS is back in sunny Singapore for our 12th Annual Meeting and it is our honor for AOGS 2015 to cooperate again with one of our longest running partners from the Asia Pacific Association of Hydrology and Water Resources (APHW).

Hydrology has always been a significant branch of geosciences and we are confident that this meeting together with the 7th Asia Pacific Association of Hydrology and Water Resources (APHW) Conference will add great value to the programs for our Hydrological Sciences Section in AOGS 2015.
