(Guest post by Masahiko Sato) Geomagnetic field paleointensity data provide critical information about the thermal evolution of the Earth, and the state of the geomagnetic field has been closely related to the surface environment. While it is pivotal to understand the variations in geomagnetic field intensity through the history of the Earth, data are still… Read more »

A recently published study in Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications finds the term ‘special needs’ to be an ineffective euphemism. In this blog, lead author of the study, Morton Ann Gernsbacher, discusses the findings, the interesting study design involving a set of vignettes and the societal impact of the term ‘special needs’.
The Editors-in-Chief of the journal share how scientific interest in endodontic research has increased over the years, and give researchers smart tips on what to look out for before submitting their manuscript.
The Journal of Big Data has recently been accepted into Scopus, an extensive database of peer-reviewed literature. Editors-in-Chief Borko Furht and Taghi Khoshgoftaar reflect on the computer science journal’s past, present, and exciting future.
(Guest post by Tomokazu Kobayashi) SAR satellite observation A satellite-based observation has a strong point in that spatially comprehensive ground information can be grasped at once even in a vast region. A synthetic aperture radar interferometry (InSAR) is an application technique of SAR observation by which we can remotely measure ground deformation with centimeter-level accuracy with… Read more »
(Guest post by Yuto Katoh) The frontier letter article by Liu (2016), published in Earth, Planets and Space, reported a potential connection between the El-Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the upper atmosphere. Using a long dataset spanning 46 years of the air mass density at 400 km height, the analysis revealed two oscillating modes of… Read more »
