Asssociation of Hungarian Geophysicists
On 27th April 1954 the Association was founded by about 200 scientists from a number of different fields, but mainly geophysicists, geologists, hydrologists, surveyors, mathematicians, physicists and meteorologists.
The Association's mission was formulated that time as follows: "to put the science of geophysics into service of the interest of increasing our people's and country's well-being, as well as developing geophysics through the meetings and papers..."
The Association of Hungarian Geophysicists represents experts of various fields of geophysics and related sciences; and promotes the professional interests of its members. It stages presentations, seminars, conferences (e.g. an assembly held each year at different sites, the annual meeting of young geophysicists and geologists) and discussions; issues the professional journal "Magyar Geofizika" (Hungarian Geophysics), organizes contests to solve technical and scientific problems; elaborates expert opinions; accepts commissions; cooperates with technical and scientific associations and other organizations, and with geophysical departments of universities at home and abroad; it presents awards for outstanding work and establishes foundations.

25.05.2011: MAGYAR GEOFIZIKA (HUNGARIAN GEOPHYSICS)
After six years of activity, in 1960 the Association started to publish a modest quaternary, of what we are editing its 46th volume. The aim of this journal was twofold: to promote the technical results published in the foreign-language literature, and to broaden the publication possibilities of the members. Now its pages are heralding the news and records of the Association's social and official life, giving forum for members' opinions, as well as publishing several expert papers per number in Hungarian, with English content.
As elected by the General Meeting for term of three years, the managing editor is Tamás Bodoky. Editorial board: Ms. Zsuzsanna Hegybíró, Kristóf Kakas, László Lenkey, Gábor Pethő, László Szarka, and László Verő.
Here we list the contents and some abstracts in backward order. According to our wish, the journal and this portal will serve the membership and the foreign/domestic reading public in synergetic mood. The printed version (the journal of 'MAGYAR GEOFIZIKA') will be made for traditional readers, while this electronic version (the homepage itself) could produce pages with quick service, with colour (and less expensive for our budget) ... see later the columns of news and coming events .
