Welcome to the GRSG

The Geological Remote Sensing Group (GRSG) is a special interest group of the Geological Society of London (GeolSoc) and the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society (RSPSoc). The GRSG is an association of enthusiasts keen on the geological aspects of remote sensing. The current membership includes geologists and remote sensing experts employed within industry, academia and government agencies, as well as graduate students. Although the parent bodies are both based in the UK the GRSG is an international organization with members around the globe. New members are always welcome.

  • The activities of the GRSG include:
    Holding an annual meeting devoted to geological remote sensing
  • Producing well-stocked and informative quarterly newsletter
  • Disseminating news and events relevant to GRSG members
  • Providing funds for research projects through the GRSG student awards
  • Organising occasional field trips and other one-off events
  • and more…

Anybody who has an interest in the geological applications of remote sensing of The Earth and other planets will be welcomed, no matter whether expert or new to the field. Some of the areas that our current members are involved with include:

  • Mineral exploration and processing applications of spectral remote sensing
  • Mining and minerals extraction
  • Oil exploration and planning
  • Geological mapping on the Earth and other planets
  • Monitoring/modelling geological processes
  • Geotechnical and engineering applications of remote sensing
  • Monitoring geohazards such as landslides and earthquakes
