Call for papers: EPS special issue

We now call for papers to the special issue of EPS named "The 2004 and 2005 Sumatra Earthquakes and Tsunamis". The great 2004 Sumatra earthquake (Mw 9.0) generated a giant tsunami which propagated across the Indian Ocean and caused the catastrophic disaster. In three months after the event, the 2005 Sumatra earthquake (Mw 8.6) occurred in the south of the source region of the 2004 event. Recent digital seismic data, digital tsunami waveforms, GPS data, satellite altimetry data and field survey data will provide new insights on source processes of the giant earthquakes and also causes of the catastrophic tsunami disaster. This EPS special issue will focus on a quick publication of results using the above data for the 2004 and 2005 Sumatra earthquakes and tsunamis. Contributors to this special issue should submit their papers to the EPS editorial office either by post or by e-mail (eps@terrapub.co.jp), following the instructions for regular EPS submission. For details, please visit the following web page:

Please state "For Special issue for the 2004 and 2005 Sumatra Earthquakes and Tsunamis" clearly in the cover letter of submission. We encourage electronic submissions. After papers are accepted, the authors will receive instructions for the final manuscript from the editorial office. The final deadline of manuscript submissions for this special issue is 30 June 2005. This special issue will hopefully be published in December 2005.
