Excellent Reviewers 2021

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. Yosuke Aoki Anton Artemyev Ciaran Beggan Arnaud Chulliat Juan José Curto Hermann Luehr Takuto Minami Yuichi Otsuka David Shklyar Yuichiro Tanioka View the Past Award Winners Read more

[Frontier Letter] Wave–particle interaction effects in the Van Allen belts

When we gaze out on the distant universe, we see billions of galaxies and we also see hundreds of billions of stars in our own galaxy, the Milky Way. Whether we observe in the narrow wavelength band accessible to our human eyes, or we expand our vision to include radio, ultraviolet, x-ray, or gamma-ray domains, we see cosmic objects because they emit energetic photons. Such photons were mostly produced far… Read more

[Frontier Letter] Physics-based secular variation candidate models for the IGRF

Fournier et al. (2021) report on physics-based secular variation forecasts for the international geomagnetic reference field (IGRF). Analysis of satellite data from 2000 onwards reveals that IGRF forecasts are worse at times of fast geomagnetic changes, which are due to processes occurring in the Earth’s fluid outer core. This calls for the implementation of  physics-based forecasting frameworks able to account for these fast changes. Fournier et al. (2021) discuss the… Read more

[Frontier Letter] A quest for unrest in multiparameter observations at Whakaari/White Island volcano, NewZealand 2007–2018

Caudron et al. (2021) explores the seismic data associated with unrest and eruptions which occurred at Whakaari/White Island volcano in New Zealand for the last ~15 years. Using novel proxies taking advantage of continuous seismic records complemented by more traditional parameters (e.g., earthquakes, deformation), they gain insight into volcano-hydrothermal systems dynamics. Caudron et al. identifies various periods of unrest, shed light on the processes triggering them and overall appears promising for future… Read more
