The British Geophysical Association is a Joint Association of the Geological Society of London and the Royal Astronomical Society.
The aims of the British Geophysical Association are to promote the subject of geophysics, and particularly to strengthen the relationship between geology and geophysics in the UK, by holding meetings and courses, by encouraging the publication of the results of research, and by such other means as are deemed appropriate to an Association by the parent Societies
