Since more than 40 years ago, WEGENER has brought together geoscientists who want to collaborate on the application of space and terrestrial geodetic techniques to the study of geodynamics in the Alpine–Mediterranean plate boundary region.
During the past decade, WEGENER has broadened its scopes beyond the Mediterranean and Geodesy. This led to the creation of a new Seismo-geodesy sub-commission, jointly supported by the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) and International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth’s Interior (IASPEI).
WEGENER, through meetings organized every two years in and around the Mediterranean is now an important component, offering a space for collaborative discussion and presentation of research.
The 20th WEGENER Assembly 2023 will be organized by the National Office of Mines (ONM which is the Geological Survey of Tunisia) from 24 to 27 October 2023 in Sousse, Tunisia. The ONM has shown a substantial interest in the processing of GNSS data and the geodynamic study of Tunisia since 2019.
