"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."
