Following the 2016 International Workshop on Induced Polarization (IP), the Near Surface Geoscience Division of EAGE is soliciting manuscripts for a special issue of Near Surface Geophysics (http://nsg.eage.org/) focused on Induced Polarization with Application to the Near-Surface.

Induced polarization (IP) is a non-intrusive geophysical method used to image the subsurface. While historically developed to detect ore bodies, the IP method has more recently emerged as an exciting technology for environmental applications. Promising applications of the IP method are particularly seen in hydrogeophysics, biogeophysics or characterization of contaminated sites.

The special issue will highlight the recent advances in the IP method as applied to the characterization of the near surface. We seek papers that address the state of IP as a geophysical measurement for near-surface applications in the field (using surface or borehole IP) and in the laboratory. We encourage the submission of papers that present new insights on the IP mechanism, novel applications and case studies of IP, technical advances in the instrumentation, new data interpretation, advancements in data acquisition and signal processing, and new forward modeling and inversion approaches.

Submit your paper
Authors should first register their interest and prospective title with the special issue editors no later than June 9 and plan to submit their manuscripts no later than September 1. This is done by sending an email to IP2016@au.dk with “Special Issue: ” in the subject. Please also indicate when the manuscript will be submitted. 

All submissions will be made using the Near Surface Geophysics online submission system (mc.manuscriptcentral.com/nsg) - please indicate that the manuscript is intended for the IP Special Section in the online submission system and in a cover letter to the editor. Manuscripts that are submitted to this special section will undergo the standard GEOPHYSICS review process; authors will also be asked to contribute to the review process.
