You are cordially invited to attend the Near Surface Geoscience Conference & Exhibition 2023 to be held for the first time in Edinburgh, 3-7 September 2023.
Our annual meeting provides a platform to discuss the near surface challenges the world is currently facing. With changing energy sources and an increased awareness of environment and climate, the focus on the near surface as a resource and the wish for minimal negative impact on the near surface has been growing. It makes the conference highly relevant to society as a whole.
Join us and discover both the city and how the near-surface geosciences have advanced, meet your colleagues, expand your network and enjoy the great atmosphere of our event.

Our annual meeting provides a platform to discuss the near surface challenges the world is currently facing. With changing energy sources and an increased awareness of environment and climate, the focus on the near surface as a resource and the wish for minimal negative impact on the near surface has been growing. It makes the conference highly relevant to society as a whole. Topics for the meeting include mining, geotechnics, engineering geology, hydrology, geothermal investigation, environment, archaeology, forensics and soil science.
Over the last three decades, hydrogeophysics has emerged as an important sub-discipline in hydrogeology and ecohydrology. It involves investigations of the structure and processes of the subsurface environment, at different spatiotemporal scales, by identifying key properties and state variables related to water flow and solute transport. After a successful first Hydrogeophysics parallel conference in Bordeaux 2021, we are happy to continue the discussion around water, environment, agriculture and natural resources in a rapidly changing climate and their implications to build a resilient society. The Hydrogeophysics parallel conference aims to connect the science with the public sectors and governmental entities.
The Infrastructure Planning, Monitoring and BIM conference joins Edinburgh with a strong regional relevance with several large projects on their way in the UK, e.g., one of the country’s (and Europe’s) largest ever construction projects, the high speed rail connection line between London – Birmingham and further north; the Lower Thames Crossing, a new highway tunnel crossing the Thames on the east side of London; and the Thames Tideway, a 25 km super sewer for the city of London, built under the river Thames. These projects require mapping archaeology, structural investigation of existing infrastructure, testing ground engineering, and monitoring hydrogeology and tunnelling activity using geophysical and non-destructive testing/monitoring instruments. It is therefore a great opportunity to welcome newcomers including design and civil engineers, city planners and geotechnical communities to take an active role in this conference after successful presences in the Hague 2019 and Bordeaux 2021.
Globally, countries are now witnessing unprecedented expansion and growth in the offshore wind farm industry in their attempts to meet climate targets. A thorough understanding of the near/shallow sub-surface is the first critical step for any/all offshore wind farm foundation designs. In order to address both of these growing needs, EAGE introduces the 1st Conference on Sub-surface Characterisation for Offshore Wind; where-in we will delve into topics ranging from seismic acquisition and imaging to data interpretation and integration. We will also focus on the recent advancements and innovations in both qualitative and quantitative geo-modeling techniques along with the use of AI (and machine learning) and the future role of autonomous vessels in addressing the challenges in Offshore Wind.
Selected workshops will take place on Sunday 3 September, prior to the conference. Stay tuned for more updates!
Participants may choose a field trip to learn about the geological diversity/ heritage of Scotland. Stay tuned for more updates!
