This year's conference is centrally located in Hawaii and will focus on near-surface issues within the entire Pan-Pacific region. This conference will provide a world-class forum for your new technical advances, developments, and applications in near-surface geophysics.

We welcome submission of papers covering theoretical developments and case histories in the broad topic of near-surface geophysics, including:

  • Shallow Seismology
  • Ground Penetrating Radar
  • Electric, EM and NMR Metods
  • Engineering Geophysics
  • Environmental Geophysics
  • Mining and Geothermal Exploration
  • Remote Sensing and Lidar Applications
  • Hydrogeophysics
  • Rock and Soil Properties
  • Borehole Geophysics
  • Modeling and Inversion
  • Geophysical Instruments

In addition, given that this year's venue is located on the Hawaiian volcanic chain we will take the opportunity to highlight geophysical applications to natural hazards with a focus on volcano geophysics. Special sessions are planned for volcano characterization and monitoring, imaging and stratigraphy of pyroclastic flows, geophysical applications to tsunamis, and passive/micro seismic methods for near-surface applications.
