Coming to the theme of NSG Geophysical Software, two Foreword contributions, give both the commercial geophysical software developer and the growing open source software community perspective, and these precede four articles profiling the use of Open Source software and seven articles profiling commercial software packages. Various useful open source softwares are also discussed in the Hydrogeophysics and Environmental Geophysics, Agricultural Geophysics, Infrastructure and Geotechnical Geophysics and the Archaeological and Forensic Geophysics regular columns.
