About Geosphere

    Welcome to Geosphere, the Geological Society of America’s online-only journal. Geosphere’s primary mission is simply to publish high-quality geoscience research results that are international in scope. We also want to encourage innovative approaches to scientific publication, such as the extensive use of color, animations, and interactivity.

    Geosphere publishes papers from the entire spectrum of the geosciences. The traditional “research paper” is analogous to papers in the Geological Society of America Bulletin. The short “research note” is to some degree analogous to papers in Geology, but we welcome even shorter contributions. Education is a major part of the mission of GSA, and thus, we welcome “educational contributions.”
