Call for Articles - International Journal of Geo-Information

We are pleased to inform that dr hab. Waldemar Kociuba, prof. UMCS (Department of Geology, Soil Science and Geoinformation UMCS) has become an editor of a special issue entitled Surface and Subsurface Mapping planned for publication in the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (IF 1.8). According to the list of journals of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (Item 9725), the article in the above mentioned journal is 70 points in the following scientific disciplines: Earth and Environmental Science and Socio-Economic Geography and Spatial Management.
Therefore, we invite you to submit your article proposals to the above mentioned special issue.


The proposed special issue on ‘Surface and Subsurface Mapping’ is addressed at a wide range of specialists in various fields, both environmental researchers (geologists, hydrogeologists, geophysicists, geographers, geomorphologists, soil scientists) and specialists who deal with changes in urbanized areas (planners, social geographers etc.). We invite you to publish the results of works which focus on describing and mapping contemporary changes of landforms. The studies that we especially welcome are these which graphically present the effects of surface and subsurface changes. Such examples include: glaciers—mapping of the surface and the bottom, mapping of subglacial and supraglacial water outflow paths; Karst areas—coupling of surface and underground relief (caves); geological and hydrogeological—mapping with particular emphasis on surface and groundwater coupling (surface water network and land surface vs. groundwater ceiling/floor maps); mapping of the thickness of surface formations such as rocks, sediments, soil, etc. What is more, studies of urbanized areas (mapping of urban surface and subsurface infrastructure) and exploitation areas (plans of excavations and land surface related) are also welcome.
