On the Cover…
Sakurajima volcano in southern Japan produces vulcanian eruptions from its Showa crater several times each day. Intense blasts are well-recorded in the infrasound band, provide insight into eruption dynamics and atmospheric prop- agation phenomena, and are the subject of an SRL focus section guest-edited by David Fee and Jeffrey B. Johnson. The cover shows a sequence of images recorded at 5 s intervals for a minor explosion that occurred 21 July 2013 at 0955 local time. Infrasound arrived at the KUR station 3.5 km away with peak excess pressure of ~20 Pa. Image timing is synchronized with the in- frasound waveform; the red/black transition corresponds to source signal timing at the vent.

Table of Contents
Seismological Research Letters

The bimonthly Seismological Research Letters serves as a general forum for informal communication among seismologists, as well as between seismologists and those nonspecialists interested in seismology and related disciplines. The contents of SRL include contributed articles on topics of broad seismological interest, opinion pieces on current seismological topics, News and Notes about seismology in the U.S. and internationally, Transitions notes about seismologists, special earthquake reports, and letters to the editor.

"The Electronic Seismologist" is one of SRL's most popular columns. Many readers find its information on data exchange, the World Wide Web, and bulletin boards containing seismological information necessary reading. "EduQuakes" aims to provide a forum for the ongoing educational mission of the Seismological Society.

SRL prides itself on its ability to disseminate information quickly. For example, articles with preliminary reports about recent earthquakes of major public interest have appeared in as little as two months after the occurrences of the events. In summary, SRL is an excellent tool for keeping current on developments in earthquake seismology.
