"Surveys in Geophysics is a rarity in the field of journals covering the Earth and space sciences in that it concentrates on review papers. Well constructed and balanced papers cover past and present observations, theory and numerical modelling efforts.
All papers, which are carefully peer reviewed and revised before publication, present recent advances in areas of great topical interest. Areas of prime relevance today include climate change, particularly sea level changes and hydrological issues, satellite geodesy and electromagnetic induction studies.
The papers are generally at a level suitable for geophysicists starting their careers in academia, government or industry. Key advice for first-time authors is given on the journal’s website."
We are proud to offer our authors:
• Wide visibility and readership - All articles are available on SpringerLink with over 50 million users at more than 15,000 institutions worldwide.
• Tools to track impact - Usage, citation and social sharing data can be viewed directly on the article page and thanks to the information we get from CrossRef.org, and author is alerted as soon as his/her paper is cited. Articles make an impact - and we keep authors informed!
• Easy article sharing - A link to a read-only version of each article is made available to the author to share easily and legally via SharedIt. This means links to view-only, full-text subscription research articles can be posted anywhere - social media platforms, author websites and institutional repositories.
• An open access option - Open Choice is available for authors who wish to make their results freely accessible while complying with open access policies. Open Choice allows you to publish open access in Springer hybrid journals such as Surveys in Geophysics, providing high visibility and impact.

    Surveys in Geophysics publishes refereed review articles on the physical, chemical and biological processes occurring within the Earth, on its surface, in its atmosphere and in the near-Earth space environment, including relations with other bodies in the solar system. Observations, their interpretation, theory and modelling are covered in papers dealing with any of the Earth and space sciences.     
     
    The papers present balanced and well constructed reviews of recent advances in areas of topical interest, written for the broad geophysical community, i.e. all Earth scientists having some background in science, especially physics, whether they are working in academia, government or industry. The nature and level of the review articles, which appear as soon as is practicable after the pioneering work that they describe, is such that researchers starting their careers will find them useful.        
       
    The subjects dealt with in Surveys in Geophysics comprise all areas covered by the AGU, EGU and IUGG - all aspects of the solid Earth, geodesy, oceans and atmosphere, meteorology and climate, hydrology, environmental issues, solar-terrestrial and space physics, plus the physics of the Moon and the terrestrial-type planets. The physics of the exploration for natural resources, including new methods and techniques of applied geophysics, natural hazards, biogeosciences and instrumentation are also covered, as are nonlinear processes. Novel diagrams are especially encouraged.      

    Readers of Surveys in Geophysics thus not only have available mature, thoughtful reviews of recent developments in their own field but also keep up to date in areas outside their own. The journal's breadth of coverage, both disciplinary and interdisciplinary, makes Surveys in Geophysics one of the leading specialist publications in the Earth and space sciences.
