Journal of Geology & Geophysics is an open access and peer-reviewed journal that publishes quality research in all aspects of Geology, Mining, Petroleum Geology, Geomorphology, Gravity & Magnetic, Geoinformatics. The journal offers Multidisciplinary research in all the areas of Geosciences including Geo-engineering, Hydrogeology, Mining, and Sequence Stratigraphy, involving theoretical and practical perspectives.
The journal uses the Online Manuscript Submission System for online manuscript submission, review and tracking the article status. The editorial board members of Geology & Geophysics: Current Research or outside experts review manuscripts; at least two independent reviewer’s approval followed by the editor is required for the acceptance of any citable manuscript.
Geology is the study of the Earth, processes involved in them, materials from it is made, its history, structure and its effect on humans and life in general. Rocks, crystals, mountains, earthquakes, volcanoes, rivers, glaciers, landslides, floods, and many other subjects fall into this broad field of research.

The US Geological Survey is a science organization that provides impartial information on the health of our ecosystems and environment, the natural hazards that threaten us, the natural resources we rely on. It serves the Nation by providing reliable scientific information to describe and understand the Earth, minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters, manage water, biological, energy, and mineral resources.

The Geology of Oklahoma is characterized by Carboniferous rocks in the east, Permian rocks in the center and towards the west, and a cover of Tertiary deposits in the panhandle to the west. The Oklahoma Geological Survey considers it very likely that the majority of recent earthquakes, particularly those in central and north-central Oklahoma.

Engineering Geology uses applications of the geological sciences and engineering to study geological factors like location, design, construction, operation, and maintenance. Geological engineers find the best ways to use the earth’s resources to solve technical problems while protecting the environment.

Forensic Geology is concerned with the application of geological data and techniques in relation to issues that may come before a court of law. It is closely related to environmental forensics, forensic engineering, and forensic archaeology. Environmental forensics is somewhat broader in scope than forensic geology. It frequently involves investigations of environmental problems such as water and air pollution.

A deposition is a geological process in which sediments, soil, and rocks are added to a landform or land mass. Previously eroded sediment will be transported by wind, ice, water which loses its kinetic energy in fluid and thus deposited. Geologic deposition includes Beach sand, lake mud, sand dunes, glacial moraines, river deltas, gravel bars, and coal deposits.

Chemical Geology is an international journal that publishes original research papers on the isotopic and elemental geochemistry and geochronology of the Earth. The Journal is concerned with chemical processes in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary petrology, low- and high-temperature aqueous solutions, biogeochemistry, and the environment.

In geology, rock is a naturally occurring solid aggregate of one or more minerals or mineraloids. The common rock granite is a combination of the quartz, feldspar and biotite minerals. There are three major groups of rocks: Igneous rocks, Sedimentary rocks, and Metamorphic rocks. Petrography is a rock identification process, which uses concise, accurate descriptions of the physical characteristics of rocks.

An unconformity is a contact between two rock units in which the upper unit is usually much younger than the lower unit. There are three forms of unconformities: disconformity, nonconformity, angular unconformity. A nonconformity exists between sedimentary rocks and metamorphic or igneous rocks when the sedimentary rock lies above and was deposited on the pre-existing and eroded metamorphic or igneous rocks.

Structural Geology is a subfield within geology which focuses on the study of geological structures. The study of plate tectonics is a form of structural geology. Structural geologists can draw connections between similar geologic formations, explore the conditions which must have been present when various geological features formed, and learn about ongoing geological processes such as mountain formation.
