Special GJI Issue on the January 2022 Eruption of Hunga Volcano

Geophysical Journal International (GJI) welcomes contributions to a special
issue devoted to the eruptive sequence of Hunga volcano (Tonga islands)
that began on 14 January 2022. This eruption produced what is perhaps the
largest volcanic explosion in the last 138 years, creating significant and
globally-observed waves in the solid Earth, the ocean, the atmosphere, the
ionosphere, and the electromagnetic field. We encourage submissions that
address observing and analyzing any aspect of these waves, or describing
and making available relevant datasets. We also welcome papers using the
radiated energy, along with other data, for characterizing the eruptive
source, or modeling other aspects of the eruption.


Submissions should be made to the GJI ScholarOne portal (; instructions to authors are
available at the main journal webpage ( In their cover
letter, authors should be sure to include a statement that their submission
is intended for the "Hunga Tonga special issue".

Papers will be published online as they are approved, and combined into a
special volume to be produced with a target date of January 15, 2023. All
papers will go through the usual GJI review process, except that they will
be handled by a special editorial board assembled for this issue. The
special editors are:

Prof. Costanza Bonadonna (University of Geneva)
Prof. Robin Matoza (University of California, Santa Barbara)
Prof. Diego Melgar (University of Oregon)
Prof. Ignacio Sepulveda (San Diego State University)
Dr. Rudolf Widmer-Schnidrig (University of Stuttgart)

All published submissions will be available online with free access. As in
regular volumes of GJI, there are no charges (except for color figures),
but authors will be encouraged to be appropriately brief.
