Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai (HTHH), Tonga, is a submarine volcano along the Tonga-Kermadec subduction zone. After activity starting in December 2021, a vast explosive eruption took place on 15 January 2022. This 2022 explosion is probably the strongest since the 1883 Krakatau, Indonesia, eruption. Besides the tremendous eruption process, the HTHH eruption is noteworthy because of its significant effects on the entire circum-Pacific region caused by large-scale perturbations in the ocean and atmosphere. Earth, Planets, and Space (EPS) has already received several manuscripts about the eruption, some of which are already published. We are therefore taking this opportunity to set up a new collection about the eruption and its related phenomena. We welcome contributions regarding the 2022 HTHH eruption or analogy events from all related disciplines. Reports of multidisciplinary research are also highly appreciated. For this collection, regular editors handle the submitted manuscripts. The collection retrospectively includes applicable papers already submitted to or published in EPS.
Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission Guidelines 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 'The 2022 Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai Eruption and Related Phenomena'.
