Aims and scope
Near Surface Geophysics is an international journal for the publication of research and development in geophysics applied to near surface. It places emphasis on geological, hydrogeological, geotechnical, environmental, engineering, mining, archaeological, agricultural and other applications of geophysics as well as physical soil and rock properties. Geophysical and geoscientific case histories with innovative use of geophysical techniques are welcome, which may include improvements on instrumentation, measurements, data acquisition and processing, modelling, inversion, interpretation, project management and multidisciplinary use. The papers should also be understandable to those who use geophysical data but are not necessarily geophysicists.
Impact Factor 2017: 1.186
Near Surface Geophysics is indexed/abstracted in the Current Contents/ Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences , ISI Alerting Service and Science Citation Index Expanded .
Near Surface Geophysics is published 6 times a year.
Call for Papers: Near Surface Geophysics is planning a Special Issue on Geoelectrical Monitoring
Geoelectrical monitoring: advances in measurement and modelling for environmental and engineering applications
The rapid development of time-lapse geoelectrical measurement systems and modelling approaches are transforming the way we monitor the subsurface. The sensitivity of electrical measurements to fluid and temperature driven processes means that geoelectrical monitoring has very wide applications across the field of near surface geophysics – relevant to topics as diverse as geohazards, mining, crop studies, groundwater monitoring and remediation, and geothermal processes. The purpose of this special issue is to showcase the latest developments in geoelectrical monitoring. We would welcome papers that describe new approaches to instrumentation and measurement, monitoring design considerations, time-lapse inversion and modelling, and novel applications of geoelectrics for engineering and environmental monitoring.
Please inform one of the Guest Editors about your intention to contribute to this Special Issue by sending a short (one-page) abstract until October 21, 2019. Full manuscripts presenting original research results and insights, and prepared following carefully the NSG guidelines, should be submitted before January 15, 2020 via the online submission system of the journal. In this system and in your cover letter, please indicate the title of the Special Issue. All submitted manuscripts will go through the regular review process of Near Surface Geophysics.
The publication of this Special Issue is planned for August 2020, but all accepted papers will be published as Early View as soon as the proofs are approved.
