At the end of the year, we would like to express our deep gratitude for our collaboration with all editors, referees, and authors in 2021. Please take a look at our Christmas card. Since our virtual office is closed from 23 Dec to 2 Jan and a significant number of editors and referees pause their work over the Christmas days, we extended all journal review deadlines: deadlines expiring shortly before or over Christmas have been extended to the week after and deadlines expiring after Christmas or over New Year have been extended to after New Year’s Day. Season's greetings and a happy New Year. Please stay healthy.

In April 2021 the EGU Publications Committee launched the first author survey to routinely ask authors about their publishing experience in EGU journals, in order to learn more about how EGU and Copernicus can serve the scientific community with their publications. Over the last 6 months, 160 contact authors answered the survey representing about 10% of the papers published during this time. We are delighted about the positive feedback and thank all authors. Please read the full report.
The journal metrics were updated and the current numbers are available from the journal metrics overview.
In the Earth system, climate tipping elements exist that can undergo qualitative changes in response to environmental perturbations. If triggered, this would result in severe consequences for the biosphere and human societies.

With great sadness, we have to announce that Paul J. Crutzen has passed away on 28 January 2021. Paul was not only an outstanding scientist and scholar, but a friend, colleague, and mentor for generations of scientists. He had also been a long-time supporter of open-access publishing within EGU and served on the advisory board of Earth System Dynamics for many years. He will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with his family. (Image credit: MPI for Chemistry)
Scientists from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel made projections of global mean sea-level change during the next 10 000 years for a range in climate forcing scenarios. They find that global mean sea level will rise between 9 and 37 m, depending on the emission of greenhouse gases. In this study, they investigated the long-term consequence of climate change for sea-level rise.

If governments don't act decisively by 2035 to fight climate change, humanity could cross a point of no return after which limiting global warming below 2°C in 2100 will be unlikely, according to a new study by scientists in the UK and the Netherlands. The research also shows the deadline to limit warming to 1.5°C has already passed, unless radical climate action is taken. The study is published today in ESD.

Temperatures in the Arctic are increasing twice as fast as in the rest of the globe, while the Antarctic is warming at a much slower rate. A new study published in ESD shows that land height could be a "game changer" when it comes to explaining why temperatures are rising at such different rates in the two regions.
