Novosibirsk State University Geophysical Society was founded in 2005 in Akademgorodok, Russia. The Society has about 80 members, most of them are students of Geology and Geophysics Department of Novosibirsk State University.

In January 2018 Novosibirsk State Technical University SEG Student Chapter has been approved and both organizations were merged to form Novosibirsk SEG United Student Chapter.

Field Camps

Since 2010 The Society has successfully arranged 6 Field Camps:

  • “Baikal Lake: Geophysical Marvel of the Earth”, Baikal surroundings, 26 July – 10 August 2010
  • “Khakassia Mysteries in the Light of Geophysics”, Khakassia, Russia, 19 – 31 July 2011
  • “Near-surface geophysical investigations and Geo-Observatory measurements”, Novosibirsk, 15-21 June 2012
  • “Geophysics – to cover undiscovered in Shira Questa Region”, Khakassia, Russia, 28 July – 4 August 2013
  • “In Pursuit of the Scythians”, Altai, Russia, 9 – 19 August 2015
  • "On the Wave", Teletskoe Lake, Altay, Russia, 23 July – 6 August 2017

The logo of the Field Camp-2015 represents an ancient griffin, traditional symbol of Scythians. This griffin is a copy of a tattoo of a well-known Altai princess, an ancient woman found in Altai.

Currently members of Novosibirsk SEG United Student Chapter are working on 2 Field Camps, that will take place in Altay and Khakassia Republic in Summer 2018.
