Just-Accepted Articles are peer-reviewed, accepted manuscripts that have been assigned Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) and undergo the normal publication process (copy editing, page composition, proofing by author, and finalization). A just-accepted article is removed when the final version of the manuscript is ready and assigned to a Journal of Environmental & Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) issue, becoming the official version of the article. The Just Accepted article has the same DOI that appears on the official version of the article; therefore, citations made to an article during the Just-Accepted stage will continue to link to the article's official version.  Click  Members Only and select "Just-Accepted JEEG Articles."

Editors’ Foreword

Aleksandra Varnavina

We are thrilled to present volume 28, issue 2 of the Journal of Environmental and Engineering
Geophysics (JEEG). However, before delving into this issue, we have some exciting news to share with you. Beginning January 2023, the Journal of
Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) will no longer charge publication fees. 

This significant decision implies that authors will no longer have to pay for publishing their work in JEEG, including papers with color figures. In this issue, we are excited to present three research papers that we believe will grab your interest and attention.

The first paper, written by Osama Elghrabawy, deals with the detection and suppression of cultural noise from aeromagnetic data. The paper presents a method that utilizes an artificial neural network (ANN) and compares the results with a conventional algorithm that employs a non-linear filter. The study’s findings indicate that the proposed approach is more efficient in processing and more accurately recovering the original magnetic data (Elghrabawy, 2023).

Li et al. present a study that carefully examines the influence of river distance and dam height on the DC resistivity method to detect the uncompacted area inside the dam (high resistivity target body). The research results show that the distance between the river and the dam has a relatively large influence on the observation data. It is impossible to effectively detect the imperfect area existing in the dam when the distance is short, and the two-dimensional inversion of the DC resistivity method can be used to detect the uncompacted area inside the dam (Li et al., 2023).
Lastly, Nishioka et al. have conducted a study to investigate the impact of various factors on the heat and water balances of an uneven ground surface. The researchers focused on a bare sloping surface at different orientations. The findings of this study will help to improve the understanding of heat and water balances, which will, in turn, support the development of better models for water management of agricultural land. (Nishioka et al., 2023).

We’d like to highlight that the paper written by Nishioka et al. (2023) was one of the manuscripts submitted for last year’s JEEG Special Issue on the Application of Proximal and Remote Sensing Technologies to Soil Investigations, which was edited by Allred et al.

(2022). Unfortunately, due to the review process, we could not publish it alongside the other papers in the special issue. By reading this paper, you will gain valuable insights that can significantly improve your soil investigation research. We encourage our esteemed readers to check out the special issue papers as well (Deo et al., 2022; Oikawa et al., 2022; Samad et al., 2022; Singh et al., 2022; Smith et al., 2022; Zhao et al., 2022).

We are pleased to acknowledge Mostafa Ebrahimi as the best reviewer of JEEG vol. 28, issue 2. We extend our sincerest gratitude to him for his efforts in assisting JEEG. We believe that the papers included in this issue will be inspiring and provide valuable insights. We hope you will enjoy reading them as much as we did.
