The mission the Journal is to inform wide circle of scientists, researchers and postgraduates about results of investigation of Geosystems effects, processes and regularities. One can distinguish Geosystems in the solid Earths, and/or hydrosphere, and/or athmosphere by certain indicators. Geosystems are a traditional subject of studies of Geoscience: Geology, Geophysics, Geochemistry, Hydrogeology, Seimology, Geoecology.

Major topics

  • Interaction of the hydrosphere, atmosphere and solid Earth, phenomena on the boundaries of media
  • Mechanisms of occurrence of earthquakes, a source, precursors of earthquakes, geohazards
  • Deformation and fracture of geomaterials, rock massifs, sea coasts
  • Hydro-gas dynamic phenomena in rocks and on the boundaries of media
  • Fundamental problems of hydrocarbon field development
  • Tsunami and other dangerous wave processes in the ocean, tsunami hazard
  • Volcanism and volcanic hazard, mud volcanism, and associated processes
  • Geoinformatics and Information Technology in Earth Sciences
  • Geophysical effects and the manifestations of modern geodynamics
  • Interrelation of biological and physical processes in the ocean, volcanic and coastal zones

  • The Journal publishes original and overview research articles, short scientific reports, letters with discussion on articles, reviews of scientific publications, essays on the history of science and scientists, as well as reports on conferences, seminars, expeditions, and published scientific literature. The volume of research articles is not limited.

    The editors of “Geosystems of Transition Zones” ask of the authors that they follow certain (Author guidelines). Articles which do not conform to these guidelines will be rejected without review. The editors will not consider articles whose results have already been published or are being considered by other publications.
