The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is a nonprofit federation of about 50 geoscientific and professional organizations[2] that represents geologists, geophysicists, and other earth scientists. The organization was founded in 1948.[3] The name of the organization was changed from the American Geological Institute on October 1, 2011.[4] The organization's offices are in Alexandria, Virginia.

AGI's monthly magazine Geotimes became EARTH Magazine on September 1, 2008 with an increased focus on public communication of geoscience research. As of April 1, 2019, EARTH Magazine suspended publication and has been folded into Nautilus magazine.[5]

Since 1966, AGI has produced GeoRef, a literature database for those studying the earth sciences.[6]
