This year EGU published more than 3,300 peer-reviewed articles in our 19 Open Access journals. Upon learning about this impressive number of articles, which equates to just over 61,000 journal pages, we wondered: which of these were the most popular? You can find out in the following list of the most-read article for each EGU journal.
