Marine Geophysical Research

An International Journal for the Study of the Earth Beneath the Sea

ISSN: 0025-3235 (Print) 1573-0581 (Online)


Well-established international journal presenting marine geophysical experiments on the geology of continental margins, deep ocean basins and the global mid-ocean ridge system. The journal publishes the state-of-the-art in marine geophysical 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 interests in researching 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 MGR predict a rising rate of advances and development in this sphere in coming years, reflecting the diversity and complexity of marine geological processes.
