Welcome to GEMS: AGU's submission system

Paleoceanography focuses on original contributions dealing with all aspects of understanding and reconstructing Earth’s past climate and environments. The journals’ scope has expanded from its original focus on paleoceanography and marine paleo-environmental records to include terrestrial records and reconstruction, and modeling and integrated studies linking diverse records together, including geochemical and biotic records. Contributions will emphasize global and regional understandings, rather than purely local interests, and can cover all ages (Precambrian to the Quaternary, including modern analogs).

Add your ORCID to GEMS and always have this identifier link you and all of your work. AGU encourages all authors and reviewers to create and add an Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID) to their account. It’s easy: just update your profile on an existing account or add ORCID when you create your account. Learn more about ORCID.

ORCIDS will now be required for all corresponding authors and strongly encouraged for coauthors.
AGU officially joins with seven other publishers in a commitment to include the ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) for authors of all papers published in 2016. See statement https://eos.org/agu-news/agu-opens-its-journals-to-author-identifiers
