Special issue on geodynamics and earth tides

Published 23 August, 2021

The 19th International Symposium on Geodynamics and Earth Tides (G-ET Symposium 2021) was held in Wuhan, China, in June this year.

This special issue aims to convey the rich and interdisciplinary topics discussed at the symposium. Alongside papers from the presenters, we welcome submissions from other scientists with interesting results on the topics of Earth tides, crustal deformation and crustal geodynamics.

Topics covered:

We welcome interdisciplinary contributions, including, but not limited to:

  • Tidal and non-tidal loading in space geodetic and subsurface observations
  • Permanent and dynamic effects of Earth tides on the geodetic reference system
  • Using tides and ocean tidal loading with modern geodesy to probe the Earth’s structure
  • Variations in the Earth’s rotation, gravity field and geocentre due to mass redistributions
  • Subsurface fluid movement through geodetic and gravity observation
  • Fluid pressure changes due to Earth tides
  • Stress and deformation changes due to injected fluids
  • Earth tides, mass movements and deformation at volcanoes
  • Tidal forcing of plate movement
  • Tidal effects on geodetic satellites such as GOCE and GRACE
  • Innovations in software, data analyses and prediction methods of loading and tides
  • Instrument development for the observation of Earth tides
  • Tides on planets

Important deadlines:

Submission deadline: 31 December 2021 (however, we suggest submitting manuscripts early in case multiple revision rounds are necessary)

Submission instructions:

Please read the Guide for Authors before submitting. All articles should be submitted online; please select Geodynamics and Earth tides on submission. All articles will be published open access with no fee payable by the author.

This special issue (SI) follows the successful SI we published in 2018 (Geodesy and Geodynamics, Volume 9, Number 3). Based on the 18th Geodynamics and Earth Tides Symposium held in Trieste, Italy, the SI contains interesting works that we think you will enjoy reading.
