Word of welcome by the Near Surface Geoscience Local Advisory Committee

We heartily welcome you to Malmö for the Near Surface Geoscience Conference & Exhibition 2017 that will be held in Malmö from 3–7 September.

This edition will host the 23nd European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics and two parallel events; the Second European Airborne Electromagnetics Conference and the Fourth Sustainable Earth Sciences Conference.

It will be a three-day scientific conference covering a wide array of issues related to Near Surface Geosciences including plenary talks, oral and poster presentations, an exhibition and field demonstrations. Furthermore, on the Sunday preceding the conference, two workshops and a short course will be offered. Different Field Trips will be organized immediately following the conference days.

The event will provide excellent opportunities for experts from government, industry, consultancy and academia to share experiences and discuss opportunities from current viewpoints to future needs. The meeting will be an opportunity for a wide community of geoscientists (geophysicists, geologists, hydrogeologists and engineers) to share technical and scientific issues on developments of shallow applied geophysics. The scientific programme will focus on the advancement and integration of shallow geophysical methods for elucidating the geometry of subsurface structures and preventing associated problems. Special sessions will be devoted to geophysical methods applied to engineering geology and geotechnical investigations, hydrogeophysical and environmental studies, geohazards including landslides, cryosphere and arctics, archaeological prospecting, assessment of industrial and mineral deposits, mining and mineral exploration, as well as method-specific themes.

Word of welcome by the Near Surface Geoscience Division

On behalf of the Near Surface Geoscience Division I cordially invite you to attend the Near Surface Geoscience Conference & Exhibition 2017, to be held in Malmö in September 2017. It is the first time that the Near Surface Geoscience conference will be organized in Sweden and I personally welcome this exciting opportunity to witness the activities of a country with a long-standing tradition in applied geophysical research and a most vibrant and active geophysical community in academia, industry and the public sector.

This edition will host the 23nd European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics and two parallel events; the Second European Airborne Electromagnetics Conference and the Fourth Sustainable Earth Sciences Conference.

Malmö, the largest city in the Skåne region, offers a strategic location at the gateway between Scandinavia and Northern Europe with excellent transport links to Denmark and the Continent. That, together with Skåne’s beautiful scenery makes it an obvious destination. A stronghold of the Viking era, the region boasts farmlands, forests and lakes littered with castles, manors and medieval churches. I am sure that you will be keen to discover for yourselves the inspiration that is associated with a place of such rich history and diverse arts.

As a division of EAGE, we are forward-looking and increasingly influential, having attracted more than 4,200 affiliated members and contributing measurably to the overall success of our Association. The September meeting is going from strength to strength in its modern format – and we are now able to incorporate an even wider range of subjects and professional interests under the Near Surface Geoscience umbrella.

Making each Near Surface Geoscience meeting even more relevant and special than its predecessors, is our continuing commitment. A carefully selected programme with numerous highlights will make being a delegate of Near Surface Geoscience 2017 an enjoyable and unmissable experience. Our commercial exhibitors will present to you the latest achievements in geophysical equipment, technology and services.

The Near Surface Geoscience Division and I look forward to welcoming you to Malmö in 2017. I do hope that you will join us and take another opportunity to network with likeminded professionals, debate your science with colleagues and friends, and share the results of your studies and to learn something new.

Chair of the Near Surface Geoscience Division
