In the context of the increasing demand for knowledge of the physical properties of the Earth’s crust with geophysical measurements, the development of new approaches for the characterization of the Earth’s crust is a crucial issue.
The focus of this Special Issue of applied sciences is seismic and electromagnetic exploration, magnetotellurics, archeogeophysics, petrophysics, inversion techniques, satellite techniques to study the Earth’s surface, and instrument development, as applied to support our image of the Earth’s crust. In addition, during the two last decades, the use of geophysical techniques for addressing environmental, engineering, and hydrogeological issues has developed significantly, since geophysical prospection can provide additional and fine information about the underground medium.
This Special Issue aims to bring together the most recent works on the application of geophysical methods for the imaging of the Earth’s crust along with the possible environmental, engineering, and hydrogeological applications, for the fine characterization of the near surface structure.
Without being exhaustive, the concerned methods are seismics, electromagnetics (e.g., magnetotellurics, time–domain electromagnetics, radar), active electrical methods (e.g., electrical resistivity tomography and induced polarization) or passive electrical methods (spontaneous potential), nuclear magnetic resonance, and even microgravimetry. Contributions focusing on the petrophysical laws, along with the application of modern satellite technique, such as satellite geodesy, interferometry, gravity etc., which may be combined with classical geophysical and seismological methods for the solution of geophysical problems are also welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
