About the Near-Surface Geophysics section

The Near-Surface Geophysics Section focuses on the development and application of any and all geophysical methods to study the near-surface region of the Earth, to advance the fundamental science of geophysical imaging (data acquisition, inversion, interpretation), and to address key questions about subsurface properties and processes.


The nominee must:
  • demonstrate engagement with the Near-Surface Geophysics section
  • be an early-career scientist within 10 years of receiving their Ph.D, or a mid-career scientist between 10 and 20 years
