About Us

The Israel Geological Society (IGS) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1954 to promote and distribute research and knowledge in the fields of geology and Earth science in Israel. Among its goals are the discussion of problems and issues related to various fields in Earth sciences and the unification of those who practice them in universities, research institutes, industrial companies, and related governmental ministries.​

The committee members responsible for the IGS management are volunteers, selected in yearly elections. The activity is sponsored by Israeli institutions, companies with Earth sciences interests as well as annual membership fees.​


We welcome new members.
