The EXPLORER is the monthly tabloid newspaper of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists that covers news of interest to the AAPG membership. Contents include coverage of the entire span of energy interest, with emphasis on exploration for hydrocarbons and energy minerals. Breaking news stories, features, profiles of personalities, comment columns and association information is included.

The EXPLORER is distributed to over 42,000 members and friends of the association in over 129 countries.


AAPG's world wide web connection provides discussion, news, Association lists and downloadable geologic information for the global earth science community.

This medium is a “live” interactive force in the profession that continues to change and grow to meet the needs and desires of the computer-using professional audience that is growing daily.

Designed and edited especially for those interested in the earth science, the page continues to attract the growing number of geoscientists connecting to the Internet.

Banner advertising appears on nearly every page of this website. With only nine slots available, exposure is high.

Meeting Program Books

AAPG annually hosts two organization-wide meetings plus one expo created specifically for the presentation of properties and prospects. The AAPG Annual Meeting and Exhibition is held in the United States during the spring, where members can present or learn from papers and posters, visit exhibits and earn education credits at courses and seminars offered there. Likewise, the AAPG International Conference and Exhibition, which occurs in the fall, provides the same opportunities in a non-U.S. setting.

A program featuring advertising is published for each meeting. Attendance for annual meetings ranges from 6,000 to more than 8,000. International conference attendance varies from 1,200 to more than 2,200 professionals.
