GeoRoundup: the highlights of EGU Journals published during March!

Each month we feature specific Divisions of EGU and during the monthly GeoRoundup we will be putting the journals that publish science from those Divisions at the top of the Highlights roundup. For March as we approach the General Assembly we are not highlighting any specific Division, so this month our GeoRoundup Journals will be alphabetical!
