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."

We are pleased to introduce the fourth issue of the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) for 2023. This issue comprises five papers that bring new insights into environmental and engineering geophysics.

The first paper, authored by Bievre and Garambois, successfully combined remote sensing and ground geophysical techniques to locate an abandoned and forgotten landfill in a fluvial plain in the French Western Alps. Historical aerial photographs, a LiDAR DEM, and geophysical mapping techniques revealed the landfill’s location and spatial extent, while ground-penetrating radar and electrical resistivity tomography provided a quantitative assessment of pit dimensions, enabling waste volume estimation (Bievre and Garambois, 2023). This paper is similar to the JEEG Special Issue on the Application of Proximal and Remote Sensing Technologies to Soil Investigations, edited by Allred et al. (2022). We are excited to include this paper in this issue and believe it will greatly interest our readers. We encourage our esteemed readers to check out the special issue papers as well (Deo et al., 2022; Nishioka et al., 2023; Oikawa et al., 2022; Samad et al., 2022; Singh et al., 2022; Smith et al., 2022; Zhao et al., 2022).

The second paper, authored by Wang et al., reports on the development of a drying device to conduct direct shear tests on soil rock mixture (S-RM) under dry-wet cycling. The study investigates the effect of dry-wet cycling on the mechanical properties of S-RM. It analyzes the pore characteristics of S-RM under dry-wet cycles using Image J software. This paper offers new insights into the mechanical behavior of soil rock mixtures, and we believe that it will be a valuable contribution to the field of geophysics (Wang et al., 2023).

The next paper, authored by Hu et al., provides a distinct shipwreck site- a partially buried ship- wreck site, an intermediary stage between sites that are entirely submerged and those that are predominantly exposed. The study shares a new insight to rethink the design of underwater cultural relic surveys in potential areas, and it is very important and constructive for underwater cultural relics investigation (Hu et al., 2023).

Widodo is the author of the next paper on this issue. He successfully employed Direct Current (DC) geoelectrical and electromagnetic (EM) methods in Parampong, Lembang, Bandung, West Java, Indonesia, to assess water distribution in agricultural lands by measuring soil resistivity and conductivity. These methods, ideal for precision farming preliminary surveys, enable evaluating subsurface properties with an environmentally friendly approach, emphasizing their relevance in green and sustainable agricultural practices (Widodo, 2023).

We would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the efforts of Mostafa Ebrahimi, who served as the best reviewer for JEEG vol. 28, issue 4. We extend our sincerest gratitude to him for his contributions to the journal.

We hope that you will find these papers informative and inspiring. Once again, we thank all the authors, reviewers, and readers for their continued support of JEEG.
