Near Surface Geophysics is an important international journal for the publication of research and development in geophysics applied to near surface. Its status is recognized by coverage in the Science Citation Index Expanded including the Web of Science ISI Alerting Service and in the Current Contents/Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences.
The publication’s emphasis is on geological, hydrogeological, geotechnical, environmental, engineering, mining, archaeological and other applications of geophysics, as well as on physical soil and rock properties. Geophysical and geoscientific case histories with innovative use of geophysical techniques are welcome, and these may include improvements on instrumentation, measurements, data 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. Near Surface Geophysics is the successor to the European Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics.
