Francisco Martínez, IDL's researcher, received the award that distinguishes the best Geophysical Pure or Applied Doctoral Thesis made in Spanish or Ibero-American Universities. The topic of Francisco's PhD thesis is "Detection and characterization of karstic caves: integration of geological and geophysical techniques". More information about the J. García-Siñeriz Foundation and the award here. Extended Abstract [...]
What lies on the sea-bed many thousands of feet below the surface? What mysteries can we answer? What history can we tell? What stories will be revealed through the use of marine geophysical techniques?
Reaching into the depths of the seas and reading the seabed through geophysical investigations is any maritime archaeologists dream. The seabed will be investigated remotely through the use of sonar and deep sea diving ROVs (remotely operated vehicle) potentially revealing intact shipwrecks and ancient settlements that tell us how human civilisation has evolved.
Never before have the Bulgarian waters of the Black Sea been investigated on this scale. Maritime archaeology and marine geophysics will work together recording, dating and understanding the submerged cultural heritage of Bulgaria, contributing to our knowledge of the prehistoric and historic environmental record of human activity in this region.
Dr Justin Dix has over twenty years’ of experience in using high resolution marine geophysical (swath, side scan and Chirp sub-bottom profiling [including the development of the first true 3D high resolution seismic system]) and geological techniques for investigating archaeological sites (both wrecks and submerged landscapes).
Acta Geophysica is open to all kinds of manuscripts including research and review articles, short communications, comments to published papers, letters to the Editor as well as book reviews. Some of the issues are fully devoted to particular topics; we do encourage proposals for such topical issues. We accept submissions from scientists world-wide, offering high scientific and editorial standard and comprehensive treatment of the discussed topics.

He completed his doctoral thesis in 1989 in the Institute of Geology of Johannes-Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany. He was Head of the Marine Geology-Geophysics Department of the Institute of Oceanography for the period 2004-2009. Between 2009 and 2013 he held the position of the Scientific Coordinator of the Underwater Activities Department (Underwater Vehicles) of HCMR.
The AGL's mission is to create and apply new geophysical means of imaging and understanding the subsurface. We are particularly dedicated to conscientious resource discovery and recovery. Faculty members work with the energy industry, professional societies, and other institutions to develop advanced technologies and help in educating the next generation of geoscientists. We use scaled laboratory measurements, field surveys, numerical modeling, and digital processing to develop novel methods of subsurface analysis.
is an international journal dealing with all aspects of general and applied geophysics. This broad scope is divided into five main categories: solid Earth sciences, hydrology, atmospheric sciences, space sciences and applied geophysics. The editors encourage also submission of articles on topics where geology, geodesy or environmental studies interfere with geophysics.
