The AAPG Bulletin is the flagship publication of the AAPG and is a publication we can all be justifiably proud of.

In December 2015, the Committee on Offshore Science and Assessment held its inaugural meeting at the National Academy of Sciences (NAS). The committee, which was established by NAS’s Ocean Studies and Earth Sciences Boards, is sponsored by The Department of Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). The primary purpose of this new committee is for NAS to assist BOEM by providing ongoing scientific feedback to most effectively manage the nation’s offshore energy resources in a way that is both environmentally and economically sound.

AAPG is the largest geoscience organization in the free world, and its members know more about frontier areas now being explored than anyone else.
