DynamicEarth: Earth’s Interior, Surface, Ocean, Atmosphere, and Near Space Interactions

Earth, Planets and Space welcomes submissions to this special issue on “DynamicEarth: Earth’s interior, surface, ocean, atmosphere, and near space interactions”.

Variations in Earth’s interior, atmosphere, oceans, and near-Earth space manifest in global fields such as in Earth’s magnetic and gravity fields. An interdisciplinary approach is thus most effective to best exploit new observations and advanced modelling capabilities. The Priority Programme 1788 DynamicEarth funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) between 2015-2021 has established an international research framework for gravity, geomagnetism, and space and atmospheric sciences to tackle their intra-disciplinary questions. This special issue solicits contributions that exploit data from dedicated satellites in low Earth orbit, such as Swarm, GRACE/-FO, among others, and addresses studies based on ground-based observations and simulations that concerns one or more of these research areas and their connections. Contributions supported by the DynamicEarth programme or by other research programmes that tackle these areas are welcome.
