Earth—An Open Access Journal

Earth—An Open Access Journal Editorial Charles Jones Department of Geography and Earth Research Institute (ERI), University of California, Santa Barbara, CA 93106-3060, USA; cjones@eri.ucsb.edu Received: 2 September 2020; Accepted: 6 September 2020; Published: 8 September 2020 Connectedness. If there is a word that succinctly describes how our Earth operates, it is connectedness. The atmosphere, oceans, lakes, rivers, land, cryosphere, living organisms, ecosystems, the solid earth, and, of course, humans, everything is connected. Changes in one part of the system can cascade to other components and change things forever. Recent decades clearly show that our Earth is experiencing rapid changes at local, regional, and global scales. Numerous examples can be found including changes in natural resources, global warming, extreme events, earthquakes, and biodiversity degradation to name just a few. Earth is a resilient place, but collective actions should be taken. A holistic view of our Earth requires multidisciplinary approaches to understand the complexities and interactions occurring on a variety of spatial and temporal scales. Earth (ISSN 2673-4834) provides an international high-quality, peer-reviewed venue with open-access to promote multi-disciplinary research over broad ranges of natural, social, and applied sciences. The rigorous and ecient editorial process seeks to make Earth an international publication to benefit the scientific community and the general public. The Editorial Board invites contributions in the form of regular research papers, communications, letters, short notes, and reviews on all aspects of interactions between humans and the Earth’s environment, resources, energy, and ecosystems, as well as interaction from the deep interiors to the exterior of the Earth itself.
