#1. Preface by Yukihiro Takahashi, President of JpGU

Currently, JpGU serves as the contact point for the Japanese earth and
planetary science community, and has concluded MOUs (Memorandum of
Understanding) with AGU, EGU, AOGS, and Taiwan’s CGU for earth and
planetary science-related unions. AGU Fall Meeting and EGU General
Assembly, which many Japanese attend, are major events that attract
15,000 to 30,000 people from all over the world every year. These
conferences are a model for JpGU, and we have learned a lot from them.
At the time of each conference, the executives and secretariats of
each union gather to update recent developments and exchange opinions,
thereby deepening the relationship as an organization.

On the other hand, although the number of participants from developing
countries in AGU and EGU is increasing rapidly, the absolute number
of participants is still small. In the EGU General Assembly, for
example, there are more than 200 participants from Japan in 2019
before COVID, but even from leading ASEAN countries such as Indonesia,
Malaysia, and Thailand, there are around 10 participants each. One
reason for that may be the cost of travel and registration fees. This
is being overcome to some extent, partly because online participation
has become possible under COVID. Nevertheless, the time difference
between Europe and Japan is still a problem for Asian countries,
including Japan, when participating online. In this sense, the JpGU
is the lowest threshold for developing countries in Asia to enter
international activities.

One of the priority goals of JpGU this term is to build and promote
international cooperation, including with developing countries. Even
in Asian countries that do not have an overall union for earth and
planetary sciences, academic activities are being developed in
individual fields such as geology, remote sensing, meteorology, etc.
In the past few months, I have personally had face-to-face discussions
with the chairpersons of eight such societies, and I have learned
firsthand that they have an extremely strong interest in and expectations
for collaboration with Japanese societies and researchers. I feel
that is something for Japan to be thankful for. Therefore, I would
like to promote deeper exchanges with such academic societies through
conferences and other events. I believe that we should not concentrate
on one organization, JpGU, in Asia, but seek a mechanism that allows
scientists from all countries, including developing countries, to be
active in fair and all-inclusive atmosphere.

#5. Information from PEPS

(1) Featured Articles
We will introduce the featured articles selected by the editor-in-chief
from the papers published in the past every month.

@ Yukiko Hirabayashi et al.:
Anthropogenic climate change has changed frequency of past flood
during 2010-2013.

This paper shows that a significant number of the floods that occurred
worldwide in the early 2010s have influenced by anthropogenic climate
change based on large-scale ensemble numerical simulation experiments.
This is a significant result in that it quantitatively demonstrates
the impression held by many experts that the impacts of climate change
are becoming apparent.

@ Tahar Hammouda et al.:
The message of oldhamites from enstatite chondrites.
Enstatite chondrites are meteorites that were formed under the most
reducing environment among meteorites. Oldamite (CaS), a major phase
containing rare earth elements (REE) in enstatite chondrites, was
analyzed to elucidate the formation process of the meteorites. Based
on the abundance pattern of REE, especially the Eu and Yb anomalies,
this manuscript clarified the condensation process of this meteorite
in the early solar system and the thermal metamorphism inside the
parent body.

(2) Latest Articles
The following articles were published.

@Masaki Satoh et al.:
Evaluation of cloud and precipitation processes in regional and global
models with ULTIMATE (ULTra-sIte for Measuring Atmosphere of Tokyo
metropolitan Environment): a case study using the dual-polarization
Doppler weather radars.

@Yuei-An Liou et al.:
Prediction of soil erosion and sediment transport in a mountainous
basin of Taiwan.

@Hitoshi KANEKO et al.:

@Yusuke Tanaka et al.:

via the GNSS carrier phase to fault slip approach: a case study of
the 2011 Tohoku-Oki sequence.

@Masahide Wakita et al.:

on the continental slope off Sanriku, Japan, before and after the 2011
Tohoku Earthquake.
