    Cover caption: Ocean bottom seismometer (OBS) recovery. OBS recovery occurred in March 2017 as part of the PI-LAB (Passive Imaging of the lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary) experiment and EURO-LAB (Experiment to Unearth the Rheological lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary). The experiments included 39 ocean bottom seismometers deployed for 1 year around the Chain Fracture Zone and the equatorial Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The OBS were co-located with 39 ocean bottom magnetotelluric instruments deployed as part of the CA-LAB (Central Atlantic Imaging of the lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary) experiment. There were also several co-located active source experiments. The goal of the experiments was to determine what makes a plate, ‘plate-like’ by studying young ocean lithosphere with a range of sensitivities and resolutions at a slow spreading end member, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

    Insights and lessons from the devastating 2023 Kahramanmaraş, Türkiye earthquake sequence

    We are all absolutely heartbroken at the sheer devastation and loss of life following the Mw7.8 and Mw7.5 earthquakes that hit Türkiye and Syria in January 2023. As seismologists and earthquake scientists, we know all too well about the power of earthquakes, yet the horrendous scenes coming out of Türkiye and Syria have still hit us hard. There will be numerous scientific analyses from the dense geophysical and geological datasets that captured these earthquakes and their consequences. We hope that these lessons will directly feed into improved disaster risk reduction worldwide. To improve dissemination of these vital scientific insights, Seismica is announcing a special journal issue on this important earthquake sequence, with papers free-to-publish and free-to-read.

    For more information on submitting a paper, please see the issue announcement.
