of Geophysical Engineers of Turkey (CGET), the only geophysical
association of the country established in 1986, is a member of the
Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects. It has inherited
the technical and scientific background of the Turkish Geophysical
Association, which was founded in 1961.
Now having its center in Ankara, CGET has 1 main branch in Istanbul,
4 regional divisions, 15 branch offices in different cities of Turkey,
22 company representatives, 8 University representatives and 5 foreign
representatives ( 2 in USA, Canada, UK and Germany ) which serve
for a total of 1565 active members.
CGET (then, the Geophysical Association), organized the 42nd EAEG
Meeting and Exhibition in Istanbul in 1980.
CGET has also organized 13 Geophysical Conventions and Exhibitions
of which the last 6 were of international level. To give an example,
800 delegates from Turkey and foreign countries attended to the
13. Geophysical Convention of Turkey which was held in Ankara between
5-9 April 1993. 133 technical papers (54 from abroad) were presented
and 24 companies took part in the Exhibition.
Besides the Geophysical Conventions, CGET co-organizes the biannual
"Petroleum Congress and Exhibition", jointly with Chamber
of Petroleum Engineers of Turkey and Turkish Association of Petroleum
Geologists. It was the co-organizer of the 1st International
Geophysical Congress of Kazakhstan held in Almaty between 15-19
May 1995. CGET recently organized "Istanbul97 International
Geophysical Conference and Exposition" together with SEG and
CGET has two periodical publications. "JEOFIZIK" is a
semiannual technical bulletin published in Turkish or English with
abstracts both in Turkish and English. "Jeofizik Bulteni"
is an informative bulletin published four times a year in Turkish.
Our Chamber also publishes technical books from time to time to
aid the development of the science of geophysics and geophysical
education in Turkey.
Being a legal organization founded by law, CGET represents the profession
in governmental affairs and gives advise on legal matters concerning
its members. It submits opinions and proposals to commissions established
by the government through its representatives.
CGET was the first Corporate Member of the EAEG and an Affiliate
of the EAPG having representatives in the councils of both associations
before the merger of the two into EAGE. Recently our Chamber became
a section of the SEG. CGET has also established close relations
with the geophysicists from many Balkan, East European and CIS countries.
It has played an important and leading role in the establishment
of "Balkan Geophysical Society" which has come into life
in 1993. CGET is currently carrying the Presidency of the BGS (1997-1999) and
is getting prepared for hosting its second congress in Turkey in
