Call for paper:  Special Issues “Data mining in Earth Sciences”

Data mining has been widely used to solve a lot of problems in Earth Sciences such as geo-hazards assessment and prediction, groundwater quality and potential prediction, land use-land cover detection, etc. Nowadays, with the emergence of new technologies such as GIS, remote sensing, automation, smart equipment like mobile phone, a huge amount of data is being generated in Earth Sciences, which creates challenges on how to analyze this data to discover the useful knowledge for solving real-world problems.

In recent years, new advanced techniques like Artificial Intelligence - AI (Machine learning and deep learning) have been developed and applied effectively in data mining of many earth sciences problems such as geo-environmental and geotechnical problems. Many new hybrid and advanced AI techniques are being proposed. Development and application of these techniques in data mining of Earth Sciences are required with new case studies.

The main objective of the special issue is to collect state-of-the-art research findings on the latest developments and challenges in the field of data mining for earth sciences. High-quality original research papers that present theoretical frameworks, methodologies, and application o case studies from a single- or cross-country perspective are welcome, as well as review articles.

Potential topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

      Data mining techniques, including classification, association, outlier detection, clustering, regression, and prediction, for decision-making, used in Earth Sciences

      Cutting-edge data mining methods, such as machine learning and deep learning for data mining in Earth Sciences

      Real-world problems in Earth Sciences such as geohazards (landslides, floods, and earthquakes), forest fire, groundwater quality and potential assessment, geo-environmental and geotechnical problems, land use/land cover detection, and any Earth Sciences related problems.

NOTICE 1 - 2019

We have submitted our journal for the inclusion in the Web of Science and Scopus. You can check the progress of the evaluation of Scopus from… We hope the Vietnam Journal of Earth Sciences will be the second Vietnam Journal in the Web of Science. The first journal is Biomedical Research and Therapy. Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology has several journals included in Web of science but published by Springer and IOP publishing. We invite warmly scientists and friends to submit high-quality articles to our journal. Please visit the facebook of Vietnam Jornal of Earth Sciences and share to your friends.
