The Geophysical Society presents its Annual Geophysical Consortium Meeting. Formed in 1987, the University of Texas at Dallas Geophysical Consortium is an association of companies from the oil, service, and computer industries. Every March, an annual meeting is held to present the ongoing research activities undertaken here at the Center for Lithospheric Studies (CLS) located at the University of Texas at Dallas. This two day event is held for sponsors of research in exploration and reservoir geophysics at the CLS, and serves as a focal point for communication between industry professionals and researchers alike. The annual meeting also facilitates the process of approaching practical research by finding out what the current industry needs are.
