About the book

Today the mining, agricultural, forestry, built-environment, extractive, geological and environmental industries place a huge reliance upon utilizing a plethora of satellite and aerial sensors as well as near-surface geophysical and other non-invasive instruments to collect geo-referenced digital data to make land resource assessments. Much of this digital data is captured and manipulated using geospatial or geographic information system (GIS) software and databases. The field scientist or land resource planner requires a practical working knowledge of the various techniques available and the ability to choose the most appropriate and most cost-effective method/s for a particular job or assessment. This book aims to provide a forum for mining, agriculture, forestry, engineering, resource planning, geology, geography, archaeology and environmental professionals.

The aim of this book is also to highlight that some so-called discipline-specific techniques, for example, airborne electromagnetism (AEM) in hydrogeology, could be more widely used in other disciplines such as archaeology. The editors welcome chapters that highlight the use of non-invasive, near-surface geophysical methods used in such disciplines as soil science and environmental science.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Edi Lipovic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
