This glossary contains the most frequent abbreviations and acronyms used in our business, and does not claim to be exhaustive.

We have grouped them by theme: Geophysics, Geotechnics, Geomatics, Oil & Gas, Marine, QHSE, and Others.

Some entries are relevant to more than one theme and are therefore listed as often.
