The contributions published in this volume are the re- sults of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop "Improvement of Joint Interpretation of Geophysical and Geological Data", which took place in Gradisca d'Isonzo in October 1987 and February 1988. Modern computer techniques were applied for geoscien- tific studies in a new dimension. 45 scientists from 7 Euro- pean countries, Canada and the united states of America par- ticipated in the workshop. Interactive discussions and modeling improved the understanding of the very complex structure of the investigated area. We thank all contributors, but especially those pub- lishing in this volume, for their active participation to ensure the success of the meetings. Not to forget to mention the groups of assistants from the Istituto di Minere e Geo- fisica Applicata of the University of Trieste and from the Institute of Geophysics of the Freie Universitat Berlin. Many thanks for their help around the clock. However, a major prerequisite for this success was given by the hospitality of the international Centre for Applied Sciences (ICAS) in the wonderful restored ancient pallazzi Torriani and Pretuna of the town of Gradisca d'Isonzo.
Thus, we are thankful to the president of ICAS, Dr. H.R. Dahlafi, and to the town of Gradisca d'Isonzo, especially to the mayor, Signore Travan. The studies carried out in Gradisca d'Isonzo had been supported by a grant of the NATO Scientific Affairs Division and we express our thanks to Dr. L. da Cunha as a steady partner in the background.
