SEG Student Chapter Berlin & Potsdam

SGS supports students in Berlin and Potsdam, who established the first Student Chapter of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) in Germany. Under the patronage of SEG, our SEG Student Chapter Berlin & Potsdam has been promoting interest in and knowledge about geophysics as well as its application in industry and academia since June 2007.
