The detection and evaluation of geohazards continues to be an active and transcendental activity in applied geophysics. Geohazards are important not only to the hydrocarbon exploration community but also to near-surface studies in hydrology, agriculture, and civil engineering, to name a few. Modern geotechnical studies often include a good component of geophysical studies for soil mechanics and foundation studies. This special section of The Leading Edge considers two exceptional recent contributions to the study, anticipation, and appraisal of geohazards via geophysical means.
