COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Featured Article: Detection of triggered shallow slips caused by large earthquakes using L-band SAR interferometry

Fujiwara et al. (2020) studied the distribution of crustal deformation caused by large earthquakes in detail using space-borne SAR interferometry and identified many displacement lineaments. Large earthquakes tend to trigger shallow slips on other surrounding pre-existing faults. Subsequently, these triggered shallow slips release accumulated strain, which in turn results in displacement lineaments. The occurrence of such passive faulting creates weak, mobile fault planes that repeatedly move at the same location. These triggered shallow slips bring diversity among active faults as a result.

Reviewers thank you

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.

Featured Article: MOWLAS: NIED observation network for earthquake, tsunami and volcano

National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED) integrated the land observation networks established since the 1995 Kobe earthquake with the seafloor observation networks established since the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami as MOWLAS (Monitoring of Waves on Land and Seafloor) in November 2017. The purpose of MOWLAS is to provide comprehensive, accurate, and rapid observation and monitoring of earthquake, tsunami, and volcano events throughout Japan and its offshore areas. MOWLAS data are widely utilized for long-term earthquake forecasting, the monitoring of current seismic activity, seismic and tsunami hazard assessments, earthquake early warning, tsunami warning, and earthquake engineering, as well as earthquake science. The application of recent technology advancements to real-time observations as well as the processing of MOWLAS data has contributed to the direct disaster mitigation of ongoing earthquakes.
