Call for papers

25th European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics


For its 25th edition, the European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics will continue to build on 25 years of research and development in the field of engineering geophysics as we join our two new sister conferences in The Hague between 8-12 September 2019. The three day scientific conference will cover a wide array of topics related to the near surface field, drawing on a wealth of excellent plenary talks, oral and poster presentations, and rich discussions. Being Europe’s most significant meeting of its kind, the 25th European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics offers participants the opportunity to meet the people behind the most cutting-edge research across a range of topics, from the applications of geophysics to the emergence of new technologies and research trends. Take part in the bright future of environmental and engineering geophysics, and join us in The Hague.


We invite abstracts on the following topics:


1.        Applications of Airborne Geophysics 

2.        Applications of Borehole Geophysics

3.        Applications of Land Geophysics: Urban Areas, Industrial Sites, Landfills, Storage Sites, and Tunnels
