The Earth, Planets and Space (EPS) publishes original articles on earth and planetary sciences, particularly geomagnetism, aeronomy, space science, seismology, volcanology, geodesy, and planetary science. We also welcome articles on new and interdisciplinary subjects, including instrumentation. Read more
Photographs are not what you see. When I (TH) was a student back in 1990s, I was always frustrated with the volcano pictures that I photographed because they somehow did not look like what I thought I really saw. It was often due to white smoke in front. So I used to prefer hand-sketching in which I can build a complete compilation of my observation for several minutes as a… Read more
Though "low-temperature pyroclastic flow" is frequently observed with phreatic eruptions, there are few descriptions of its internal environment. The low-temperature pyroclastic flow of the 2015 eruption of Kuchinoerabujima volcano, southwestern Japan, provides geophysical data, video image, and geological descriptions of the deposits. The video image indicates that the velocity of flow exceeded 42 m/s. The dieback of the vegetation and deformation of some plastic materials in the flow, with absence… Read more
Please note that beginning September 1st, 2018 the new APC (Article Processing Charge) will be applied. As APC flow chart is also modified with this revision, please recheck the APC flow chart after September 1st, 2018. Read more
It has been known that Po waveforms are complicated due to high-frequency scattering within the mantle, but Tonegawa et al. (2018) attempted to retrieve Po-to-s (Pos) waves converted at crust-related interfaces by cross-correlating Po wave coda from the radial and vertical components. As a result, their results successfully showed the retrieval of Pos waves from the basement and oceanic Moho, and also demonstrated the effectiveness of this new approach by revealing lateral variations of Pos-wave emergence and layer-dependent shear wave anisotropy from the outer-rise to seaward regions.

The year 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of EPS. Having a long history of 70 years owing to its predecessor journals, JGG and JPE, EPS is one of the oldest international journals in the field of earth and planetary sciences. When established in 1998, its former editor-in-chief Dr. Yoshimori Honkura said in the prefatory note of the journal, ... EPS should become widely circulated as one of the leading international… Read more
