Featured article: Pyroclastic density currents associated with the 2015 phreatomagmatic eruption of the Kuchinoerabujima volcano

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 of carbonization of woods, suggest that the temperature in the flow was between 100 and 270 degrees Celsius. Though the estimated temperature is lower than the magmatic pyroclastic flows, the physical environment inside the flow is still fatal to human.

Messages on EPS

This video serves as an introduction to <Journal name> and gives an insight into the relevance of the journal to modern day events, such as the special issue on the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake.

Aims and scope

Earth, Planets and Space (EPS) covers scientific articles in Earth and Planetary Sciences, particularly geomagnetism, aeronomy, space science, seismology, volcanology, geodesy, and planetary science. EPS also welcomes articles in new and interdisciplinary subjects, including instrumentations. Only new and original contents will be accepted for publication. No review papers will be accepted.

Thanks to all our reviewers

A peer-reviewed journal would not survive without the generous time and insightful comments of the reviewers, whose efforts often go unrecognized. Editors and staff of Earth, Planets and Space would like to publicly acknowledge our peer reviewers.

Special Issues accepting submissions

Lateral variation of the uppermost oceanic plate in the outer-rise region of the Northwest Pacific Ocean inferred from Po-to-s converted waves

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.
