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.

If you are a corresponding author affiliated with a German university or research institution, you are entitled to publish open access in our journals with fees covered by the German DEAL agreement.

More than 900 German institutions are eligible to participate in the agreement between Springer Nature and Projekt DEAL, meaning that corresponding authors* affiliated with these institutions are eligible to publish their articles open access without being invoiced by Springer Nature. The agreement includes more than 2,000 hybrid journals across the Springer Nature portfolio (from January 2020) and more than 500 fully OA journals (from August 2020).

  • Reports on new developments in the field, including sea floor imaging techniques and new tools for measuring the physical properties and geochemical composition of marine sediments and rocks
  • Broad coverage of studies on continental margin geology & geophysics, tectonics, stratigraphy and sediment deposition processes
  • 100% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again
  • Does not charge for colour illustrations
