The Journal missionis to inform Russian and foreign scientific society about the results of studying the geosystems of the transition zones of the Earth and related problems of geophysics, geology, geodynamics, seismology, geoecology and other sciences.

The Journal topics
• Interaction of hydrosphere, atmosphere, and solid Earth, geomedia contacting effects
• Mechanisms of earthquake occurring, focus, earthquake precursors, geohazards
• Straining and destruction of geological materials, rock massifs, sea coasts
• Hydrogasdynamic phenomena in rock massifs and on the geomedia contacts
• Fundamental problems in hydrocarbons field development
• Tsunami and other dangerous wave processes in the Ocean, tsunami hazard
• Volcanism and volcanic hazard, mud volcanism and related processes
• Geoinformatics and information technology in Earth sciences
• Geophysical effects and modern geodynamics manifestations
• Interrelation of biological and physical processes in ocean, volcanic, and coastal zones
