Canadian Societies for the Geophysical Sciences (CSGS)
What is CSGS?
- A mechanism to link, integrate and coordinate the geophysical sciences in Canada
- A voice from the geophysical sciences to government, funding agencies, industry, the public
- A way to promote the advancement of the geophysical sciences in Canada
- Facilitate collaboration and exchange amongst Canadian geophysical sciences
- Coordinate and promote a vision for the integration of the geophysical sciences in Canada
- Commonality of approach – application of physics to dynamical Earth systems, linkages to environment, chemistry, biology, geology
- Scientific exchanges and interdisciplinary linkages in the geophysical sciences
- Coordinated voice to scientific funding bodies and government on issues of policy relating to, and support for, the geophysical sciences
- A vision for the advancement of the geophysical sciences in Canada
IUGG has associations corresponding to:
- Geomagnetism & Aeronomy
- Meteorology & Atmospheric Sciences
- Physical sciences of the Oceans
- Seismology & Physics of Earth’s interior
- Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s interior
- Cryospheric Sciences
- Joint meetings of members of CSGS
- Enhance profile of geophysical sciences with the public and representation in secondary and post-secondary education
- Identify and recommend research support by governments and others
- Recommendations to member societies
Any society that makes a scientific contribution to the geophysical sciences.
Members currently include:
- Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU)
- Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS)
- Canadian Society of Soil Science (CSSS)
- Canadian Water Resources Association (CWRA)
- Canadian Society for Agriculture and Forest Meteorology (CSAFM)
PAGSE is a cooperative association of more than 25 national organizations in Science and Engineering, representing approximately 50,000 individual members from the industry, academia, and government sectors. It was formed in June 1995 at the invitation of the Academy of Science of the Royal Society of Canada to represent the Canadian science and engineering community to the Government of Canada. CMOS is a member of this association.

All activities of the Consortium are conducted with volunteers from the constituent member societies and organizations. A six-member steering committee provides the planning and leadership for the CCR and reports to the Consortium at regularly scheduled monthly meetings of the member representatives.
CMOS is one of the 120 charter members of SMCC.
MOU between CMOS and AMS
The Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS) and the American Meteorological Society (AMS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for mutually beneficial interaction. On October 31, 2014, the MOU was signed by both Presidents, Dr. Harinder P. S. Ahluwalia of CMOS and Dr. William B. Gail of AMS. In 2019 the MOU was extended by both Presidents, Kimberly Strong of CMOS and Jenni Evans of AMS until October 31, 2024.
This MOU will allow CMOS members to join AMS as “Affiliate Members” and with benefits provided to Affiliate Members as outlined on the AMS website, including, but not limited to a subscription to the digital version of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS), member rates on all journals, books, and other products of the AMS, and member registration rate for all AMS meetings. The dues rate for Affiliate Members will be approximately 66% of the normal member rate. CMOS members will apply for Affiliate Members status directly with AMS, and AMS will handle all aspects of the application and annual renewal process. Members of CMOS will be asked to provide their CMOS membership number (or other appropriate identification) that can be confirmed with CMOS at the discretion of AMS.
AMS members will receive reciprocal benefits. Several other benefits to both Societies are listed in the MOU. For a full description, please consult the CMOS - AMS agreement .
MOU between CMOS and AMOS
The Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS) and the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for mutually beneficial interaction. In November 2018, the MOU was signed by both Presidents, Paul Kushner of CMOS and Andrew Marshall of AMOS.
This MOU will allow CMOS members to join AMOS as “Reciprocal/Affiliated Members” and with benefits provided to Reciprocal/Affiliated Members as outlined on the AMOS website, including, but not limited to access the digital version of the Bulletin of the Australian Meteorological & Oceanographic Society, and access to career and employment opportunities. The dues rate for Reciprocal/Affiliate Members will be equal to the professional retired member rate. CMOS members will apply for Reciprocal/Affiliate Members status directly with AMOS, and AMOS will handle all aspects of the application and annual renewal process. Members of CMOS will be asked to provide their CMOS membership number (or other appropriate identification) that can be confirmed with CMOS at the discretion of AMOS.
AMOS members will receive reciprocal benefits. Several other benefits to both Societies are listed in the MOU. For a full description, please consult the CMOS - AMOS agreement .
