Acta Geophysica is an international journal dealing with all aspects of general and applied geophysics, atmospheric phenomena. This broad scope is divided into five main categories: Solid Earth Sciences, Hydrology, Atmospheric and Space Sciences, Anthropogenic Hazard and Applied Geophysics. Primary consideration will be given to studies significantly advancing fundamental understanding in geophysics, atmospheric processes and focusing on the interconnection of multiple topics. Work authored by young scientists is welcome.

  • Owned by the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences & Polish Academy of Sciences
  • Covers the entire spectrum of disciplines in geophysics
  • Deals with all subjects related to atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere
