Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Potential field data are widely used in the search for new mineral deposits. A large number of semiautomatic interpretation techniques are used to provide initial estimates of source parameters, such as the location, depth, dip, susceptibility, etc. These initial estimates are then refined by forward and inverse modeling. As well as including case histories, this Special Issue will look at new developments of techniques in all of these areas of research.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
