    Aims and Scope


    Acta Geophysica is an international journal dealing with all aspects of general and applied geophysics. This broad scope is divided into five main categories: solid Earth sciences, hydrology, atmospheric sciences, space sciences and applied geophysics. The editors encourage also submission of articles on topics where geology, geodesy or environmental studies interfere with geophysics.     

    Acta Geophysica publishes all kinds of high quality contributions: research and review articles, short communications as well as comments to published papers, and letters to the editor. Proposals for special, topical issues are also welcome, for which careful assistance of the editorial team matches considerable independency granted to their Guest Editors.
