Authors are advised to choose the subject area that best suits their manuscript. In the event that the manuscript is accepted, and the editor deems it more fitting for a different section, it will be reclassified accordingly. It is important for authors to be aware that the “Data and Methods for Geophysics” category is intended for manuscripts introducing data and methods applicable across multiple specialties. Manuscripts employing various methods to investigate a specific problem typically fall within one of the alternative subject areas.
