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

It is essential for an academic journal to have qualified reviewers to maintain its scientific standard. To recognize the contributions of important reviewers in Earth, Planets and Space, we have granted the 'Excellent reviewers' award to selected reviewers each year since 2013. The awardees are determined at the end of each year by the EPS editorial board based on the recommendations of regular and guest editors. Calum Chamberlain (Victoria University… Read more

The quality of global-scale ionospheric plasma circulation maps provided by the SuperDARN radars depends strongly on the number of detected echoes. Over the last decade of relatively low solar activity, the best SuperDARN echo occurrence rates are in the polar cap. Koustov et al. (2019) show that SuperDARN radars in both the North and South hemispheres have similar patterns in echo occurrence over the daily, seasonal, and solar cycles. Many… Read more
