Ahhh, this is why I love SERIALST. I received a reply to my
questions regarding _Physics and Chemistry of the Earth_ less than 24
hours later! (Thank you, Fran!)

The upshot is (and the info came from Elsevier):

* There is indeed a Publisher's Note in Vol. 20, no. 1 explaining the
changes in format.

* The title is now being prepared in conjunction with the European
Geophysical Society, publishing papers from their annual assemblies.

* Because of the switch to publishing papers/proceedings, it was felt
by the publisher best to change its format from hardback to softcover.

* They hope to publish the title more frequently and to a more
regular schedule (the Elsevier response didn't indicate a frequency,

Exactly the information I needed, so that's one less thing sitting on
my desk.

Thanks again, SERIALST!

  Although we cancelled this title after vol. 19 our catalogue record
shows that the first 9 volumes didn't carry distinctive titles and we
began analyzing with v. 10.; v. 12 also didn't carry a distinctive title.
Thus our treatment of this title is as a partially analyzed series. Since
v. 20 doesn't have a distinctive title either I would say the publisher
is continuing with earlier practice.

  Our check-in record shows that v. 17 and 18 were also issued in parts;
v. 17 pt. 1 issued in 1990, v. 17 pt. 2 issued 1991; v. 18 pt. 1-2 issued
in 1991, v. 18 pt. 3-6 issued in 1992; v. 19 pt.1-6 in one v. issued in 1992.
It would appear that frequency is still irregular.

  Hope this helps.
