The special issue co-editors are Guoqiang Xue and Jianghai Xia. Sponsorship of this issue is open.
Suggested themes are:
• Recent Progress in instrument development for near surface geophysics in China
• Novel near surface geophysical systems in China
• Data acquisition, modeling, and inversion in China
• Case histories for all aspects of near surface geophysics in China

International contributions are encouraged. The special issue will accommodate at least 15 papers, but all accepted papers will be considered for publication in other JEEG issues. Papers may be submitted through the JEEG submission site, http://jeeg.allentrack.net. Indicate in the cover letter that the paper is for consideration in the Geophysics in China special issue. The deadline for submissions is March 31st, 2017.  For important details in English and Chinese, please review the Call for Papers announcement.
