CGU' 15th Meeting

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The 1988 Annual Meeting of the Canadian Geophysical Union in May in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, marked a major change in the Union's position as one of Canada's scientific societies. While enjoying the guidance and support of the Geological Association of Canada and of the Canadian Association of Physicists for 15 years, the members of the Union overwhelmingly indicated their preference for an independent organization. The main objective of the new organization, according to its constitution, is “to advance the science of geophysics and promote a better understanding thereof throughout Canada.” In the spirit of this goal the executive received a mandate to establish formal contacts with several related scientific organizations. Negotiations toward various forms of association have reached different levels of completion with American Geophysical Union, Canadian Institute of Surveying and Mapping, Canadian Meteorological and Oceanograpahic Society, Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists, European Geophysical Society, and Geological Association of Canada.
