This special issue is for the 20th anniversary of Earth, Planets and Space (EPS), which was established in 1998 as a continuation of the two journals, Journal of Geomagnetism and Geoelectricity (JGG) and Journal of Physics of the Earth (JPE). In 2014, we started an open access publication under the SpringerOpen platform. To commemorate the 20th anniversary and to aim for future development of relevant frontier research, this special issue is dedicated to the emerging topics on earth and planetary sciences in the next decade, within the scope of the five supporting societies. Introductions of upcoming scientific missions or infrastructures are welcome.
