Aims and scope

Terrestrial, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (TAO) publishes original articles, notes, correspondence, and reviews on the solid earth, atmosphere, hydrosphere and space. The journal consists of six sections:
  • Geophysics
    The Geophysics Section of TAO publishes original research in all scientific and applied aspects of geophysics, seismology, tectonophysics, geodesy, and natural hazards.
  • Geology
    The Geology section of TAO publishes original research in all aspects of geologic science and its implication, including structural geology, tectonic evolution, petrology, geochemical, structural geology, mineral, fossil..etc.
  • Atmospheric Science
    The Atmospheric Science Section for the journal of Terrestrial, Atmospheric, and Oceanic Sciences (TAO) publishes basic and applied research related to the physics, dynamics, and chemistry of the atmosphere on Earth, with emphasis on the quantitative and deductive aspects of the subject.
  • Space Science
    TAO Space Science publishes original research articles on the broad field of space science, including aeronomy, ionospheric physics, magnetospheric physics, planetary sciences, solar and interplanetary physics, cosmic rays, heliospheric physics, and links and couplings among them.
  • Oceanic Science
    The Oceanic Science Section for the journal of Terrestrial, Atmospheric, and Oceanic Sciences (TAO) publishes original research articles on all aspects of oceanic science and its applications.
  • Hydrology
    The Hydrology Section of TAO publishes original research in all scientific and applied aspects of surface and subsurface hydrology, including their interactions with geological, biogeochemical, atmospheric, ecological, and social systems.
