Commentaries on Hydrology and Earth Surface

Last updated:
24 October 2017

This collection of commentaries highlights the role of water in the physical, chemical, biological, and ecological sciences and includes content on public health and related social and policy sciences. It also includes the physical, chemical, and biological processes that affect the form and function of the surface of the solid Earth over all temporal and spatial scales. They are invited by the editors of AGU journals and each commentary is freely available. Additional hydrology related commentaries are published as a debate series in Water Resources Research. See debates on "Stochastic subsurface hydrology from theory to practice," "The future of hydrological sciences: A (common) path forward?" and "Perspectives on Socio-Hydrology."

Earth and Space Science is Essential for Society

This special collection presents a series of commentaries from across AGU's journals explaining and illustrating the relevance of Earth and space science research for the benefit of humanity--a key part of AGU's mission. The commentaries show how data, models, and understanding across a range of topics have broad applications, and provide economic and societal benefits. The context for this special collection and some of the common themes are further discussed in an Editors' Vox and an AGU press release. Together, these commentaries demonstrate that Earth and space science is essential for society.

Featured Special Collection

A Census of Atmospheric Variability from Seconds to Decades 

The atmosphere varies naturally on all length scales from millimeters to thousands of kilometers, and on all time scales from seconds to decades and longer.  This special collection of Geophysical Research Letters synthesizes and summarizes that variability through a phenomenological census.  The collection brings together some of the most influential and definitive papers to have been published in this journal in recent years.  The topics covered include turbulence on time scales of seconds and minutes, gravity waves on time scales of hours, weather systems on time scales of days, atmospheric blocking on time scales of weeks, the Madden–Julian Oscillation on time scales of months, the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation and El Niño–Southern Oscillation on time scales of years, and the North Atlantic, Arctic, Antarctic, Pacific Decadal, and Atlantic Multi-decadal Oscillations on time scales of decades.  The collection is accompanied by a Commentary article, which provides an authoritative, concise, and accessible point of reference for the most important modes of atmospheric variability.
