Possible evidence for a remnant slab and a passive plume revealed by waveform inversion for 3-D S-wave velocity structure
(Guest post by Yuki Suzuki and Kenji Kawai (University of Tokyo)) The D′′ layer (Bullen 1949), the lowermost several hundred kilometers of the Earth’s mantle immediately above the core-mantle boundary (CMB), is the thermal boundary layer (TBL) of mantle convection in touch with the liquid iron alloy outer core. The D′′ layer, especially beneath subduction… Read more »

Editor-in-Chief of SpringerOpen journal The Journal of Headache and Pain, Prof. Martelletti shares his thoughts on cluster headache awareness.
A rather versatile material, titanium dioxide (TiO2) has no shortage of uses. At the nanoscale, researchers have made TiO2-carbon nanotubes, have doped perovskite solar cells with TiO2 nanorod arrays, and have used those nanorods with tungsten trioxide in light-emitting devices, and more. All of these applications, and more, were described in recent articles published in… Read more »
Come to the Springer Nature booths (110-116) at the American Physical Society March 2017 Meeting and learn about Springer Nature’s comprehensive open access portfolio in physics.
Energy, Sustainability and Society now has a new Editor-in-Chief; in January 2017, Daniela Thrän succeeded Michael Narodoslawsky. We took this opportunity to talk with the old and new Editor-in-Chief, as well as the journal’s Managing Editor, Dagmar Fiedler. We asked them to look back to the launch of the journal, as well as to give an outlook of their visions for its future. They also told us more about themselves, shared their opinions on open access, and offered some great tips for submissions to the journal.
