Featured article: Paleomagnetic studies on single crystals separated from the middle Cretaceous Iritono granite

Granitic rocks could be good recorders of deep-time geomagnetic field behavior, but paleomagnetic measurements on whole-rock granitic samples are often disturbed by the presence of unstable multi-domain magnetite. Kato et al. (2018) demonstrated that single plagioclase crystals separated from granitic rocks can be reliable recorders of the geomagnetic paleointensity by a series of rock-magnetic measurements and Tsunakawa-Shaw paleointensity experiments on plagioclase crystals of the middle Cretaceous Iritono granite, for which past studies have provided tight constraints on the paleomagnetism and paleointensity. The estimated paleointensity value suggests that the time-averaged field strength at the middle of the Cretaceous normal superchron was several times as large as compared to that of non-superchron periods.

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.

Featured article: Volcanic smoke reduction in visible and thermal infrared imagery

Photographs are not always what you see. In many cases, white smoke emitting from fumaroles, commonest among active volcanic craters, makes a picture totally vague, preventing us from observing the details behind it. One conventional way around it is hand-sketching in which you can compile your observation by piecing the smoke-free fragments from moment to moment into one picture. But this can be done more objectively by computer and this paper presents a simple algorithm of digital compositing that eliminates volcanic smoke from an image sequence. Supplemental material with the ready-to-run sample scripts for visible and TIR images are also available.
