Marine Geophysical Research is an international journal covering the geology of continental margins, deep ocean basins and the global mid-ocean ridge system. The journal publishes state-of-the-art research including innovative geophysical data analysis, new deep sea floor imaging techniques, and tools for measuring rock and sediment properties.

Marine Geophysical Research reaches a large and growing community of readers worldwide. Rooted on early international interest in the global mid-ocean ridge system, its focus has expanded to include studies of continental margin tectonics, sediment deposition processes and resulting geohazards, as well as their structure and stratigraphic record. The editors of MARI predict a rising rate of advances and development in this sphere in coming years, reflecting the diversity and complexity of marine geological processes.
