A Forward by the Editor

Happy 25th Anniversary to the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics. What began as a fledgling publication for disseminating applied research in the area of near surface geophysics has grown to a significant scientific contribution with articles from all over the world. To celebrate the achievement, we embarked on a journey to redesign the face of the journal including an upgrade to the article layout and a modern looking cover. The design process was crowd sourced through the EEGS board and fellow geophysicists. I would like to particularly thank Shawn Calendine and Mark Dunscomb for their design ideas for the cover.

As we head into the next 25 years, it is interesting to imagine where the science will take us. New acquisition hardware and software will allow us to acquire and process data faster, upscaling the surveys significantly. New parameterizations will help us bridge into complementary sciences of hydrology, mining, and engineering. Applications will be geared towards the tracking of long term effects of climate change. I look forward to reading of their investigations between the covers of writing this editorial from the confines of my house, sitting at a makeshift desk made from a plastic card table in the guest bedroom. The coronavirus has forced us all in doors for the past month and it is unknown when we will be able to emerge and return to life as we knew it. Millions of people are already infected and it is expected that many will perish. For this reason, the annual meeting SAGEEP was postponed. I typically announce the winner of the Alan Witten Best Paper Award during conference, but I am happy to do it here as well. The winner is Gungor Bidem Beskardes with her paper titled “Power Density Distribution in Subsurface Fractures Due to an Energized Steel Well-casing Source” (Beskardes et al., 2019). The paper explores a novel method of remotely powering underground sensors with electromagnetics. The competition was stiff and I encourage you to read the four papers that made the final round, including the works by Huntley et al. (2019), Rahimi et al. (2019), and Wu et al. (2019).
