The Albanian Geophysical Society (AGS) was founded in 1992, based on the existing section of the Society of Albanian Geologists, founded in 1989. The AGS name from 1992 to 1998 has been Association of Albanian Geophysicists (AGA).

According to decision Nr. 1247 on 3.4.1998, Tirana Law Court, was founded ALBANIAN ASSOCIATION OF GEOSCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS, based on the unification of the Association of Geophysicists of Albania (1992), Albanian Association of Petroleum Geoscientists (1993) in 1998, and Association of Albanian Geologists (1989), jointed in March 1999.

AGS is Associate Member of the EAGE and Member of the Balkan Geophysical Society.

Geophysics for environmental problem.

The scientific results of the AGS are being published in the following Albanian periodicals (published in Albanian language, English abstracts):

        Bulletin of Geological Sciences

        Oil and Gas Bulletin

        Mining Sciences Bulletin

Different papers are published in various international and different countries journal.

AGS has organized two National Symposia (1992, 1994) with great success.
