The Association of Icelandic Geographers (AIG) was formed in 1991 when two smaller geographical societies joined forces. Today we estimate that there are between 400-500 geographers in Iceland, most of whom have graduated from the University of Iceland and many with further education from abroad. Most of them are listed as members of the AIG.

The association publishes its own geographical journal, "Landabréfið" ("The Map Sheet"). Established in 1979, it initially served as a newsletter for the geography community of Iceland. Over the years it has evolved into a scholarly journal. Today, we proudly present it as a fully peer reviewed publication. See more about Landabréfið.

The Association arranges a yearly Spring Conference, a Geography Day in autumn, as well as several social gatherings, meetings and lectures and other irregular events, intended for geographers and other interested parties.

All geographers and geography students in Iceland as well as geographers across the Icelandic exclusive economic zone are welcome to join AIG. The main working language is Icelandic, although "Landabréfið" is accepts papers both Icelandic and English, then with abstracts in the other language.

Please contact us if you have questions or comments, and please have look at Landabréfið, our yearly publication.
