… Introducing ‘Article Highlights’ beneath the abstract …

Surveys in Geophysics publishes refereed overview articles on 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 modeling are presented in relation to relevant disciplines in the Geosciences and related areas.
Published articles present balanced and well constructed reviews of recent advances in areas of topical interest, written for the broad community of earth scientists in academia, government and industry.
The subjects covered in Surveys in Geophysics comprise 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 Editor-in-Chief of Surveys in Geophysics is Michael J. Rycroft, CAESAR Consultancy, Cambridge, UK.

The journal’s objectives are also to endorse and align with the UN sustainable development goals SDG 13 (Climate Action), SDG 14 (Life below Water) and SDG 15 (Life on Land).
