Earthzine ( was established in 2007 as an outreach activity for the GEO (Group on Earth Observations) and GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of Systems) initiative. As a newly adopted publication of the Oceanic Engineering Society, we seek contributions to bolster Earthzine’s coverage of oceans-related activities.

Topics may include project developments (especially concerning the European Commission’s Horizon2020, and the equivalent in the U.S. and Asia/Pacific), national or regional achievements, industrial projects with societal impacts, etc.

We seek submissions spanning many possible applications and research initiatives including:

•    ship and pollution monitoring
•    coastal zones surveillance
•    deep sea exploration
•    new technological outcomes for underwater missions
•    spaceborne sensing of the oceans
•    active and passive sensing of physical events (wind, waves, currents).

The theme issue is scheduled for June 22-Sept. 20, 2014. We seek to publish articles from all regions of the globe.

Earthzine seeks to explore the application of scientific and technological research as well as policy and its implementation for the benefit of society. We welcome articles about programs, projects, organizations, examples of interdisciplinary and/or cross-regional research latest discoveries, and unusual findings. We also publish opinion essays, and book and art reviews. Submissions must be in English.

Please send your submissions to the Guest Editors Edward Gough and René Garello and Managing Editor Jeff Kart.

Important dates: Queries to the editors may be sent at any time. Submission of original articles, essays, opinions, and book or art reviews for the upcoming theme will be accepted between until May 30, 2014.

Publication: All accepted contributions will be published online at and will be freely accessible to the public. Earthzine does not charge authors for publishing.
