This Special Joint-Issue of the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics and Near Surface Geophysics entitled “Geotechnical Assessment and Geo-environmental Engineering” is a selection of original contributions organized under two themes. Near Surface Geophysics presents eight articles on the application of the electrical resistivity techniques to determine the geotechnical properties of the ground, and the integration of geophysical and geotechnical data. The Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics contains seven papers that investigate the stability of structures using seismic techniques. The articles presented in this special joint-issue were selected from a pool of over forty manuscript submissions never published before. The papers are peer-reviewed by a panel of experts from around the world and are at the forefront of the current state-ofknowledge. We hope that both researchers and professionals responsible for site and geomaterials characterization will find the information contained in this collection of practical use.
