Geoscientific Instrumentation, Methods and Data Systems (GI) is a not-for-profit open-access interdisciplinary electronic journal for swift publication of original articles and short communications in the area of geoscientific instruments. It covers four main areas: (i) atmospheric and geospace sciences, (ii) Earth science, (iii) ocean science, and (iv) urban environmental monitoring. A unique feature of the journal is the emphasis on the synergy between science and technology that facilitates advances in GI.
