Aims and scope

Solid Earth (SE) is a not-for-profit journal that publishes multidisciplinary research on the composition, structure, dynamics of the Earth from the surface to the deep interior at all spatial and temporal scales. The journal invites contributions encompassing observational, experimental, and theoretical investigations in the form of short communications, research articles, method articles, review articles, and discussion and commentaries on all aspects of the solid Earth (for details see manuscript types). Being interdisciplinary in scope, SE covers the following disciplines:

  • geochemistry, mineralogy, petrology, volcanology;
  • geodesy and gravity;
  • geodynamics: numerical and analogue modeling of geoprocesses;
  • geoelectrics and electromagnetics;
  • geomagnetism;
  • geomorphology, morphotectonics, and paleoseismology;
  • rock physics;
  • seismics and seismology;
  • critical zone science (Earth's permeable near-surface layer);
  • stratigraphy, sedimentology, and palaeontology;
  • rock deformation, structural geology, and tectonics.
