International Geomagnetic Reference Field - The Thirteenth Generation

Earth, Planets and Space welcomes submissions to the special issue on ''International Geomagnetic Reference Field - The Thirteenth Generation.

This special issue, titled “International Geomagnetic Reference Field - The Thirteenth Generation” solicits papers related to:

  1. Construction of candidate models for IGRF-13, including methodology, datasets, and error analysis used to build the candidates.
  2. Recent advances in geomagnetic core field modeling which are of interest to the IGRF community and/or could be beneficial to future internal field modeling efforts.

Submission Instructions

Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission guidelines for Earth, Planets and Space. The complete manuscript should be submitted through the Earth, Planets and Space submission system. To ensure that you submit to the correct special issue please select the appropriate special issue in the drop-down menu upon submission. In addition, indicate within your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the special issue on  International Geomagnetic Reference Field - The Thirteenth Generation. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review and accepted articles will be published within the journal as a collection.

Deadline for submissions: 31 August 2020

Submissions will also benefit from the usual advantages of open access publication:

  • Rapid publication: Online submission, electronic peer review and production make the process of publishing your article simple and efficient
  • High visibility and international readership in your field: Open access publication ensures high visibility and maximum exposure for your work - anyone with online access can read your article
  • No space constraints: Publishing online means unlimited space for figures, extensive data and video footage
  • Authors retain copyright, licensing the article under a Creative Commons license: articles can be freely redistributed and reused as long as the article is correctly attributed.
  1. We present the geomagnetic field model COV-OBS.x2 that covers the period 1840–2020. It is primarily constrained by observatory series, satellite data, plus older surveys. Over the past two decades, we consider...
