Troitskaya honored for crucial role in ULF wave research



At the 1996 Spring Meeting in Baltimore, a special session was held to honor Valeria Troitskaya, who virtually invented the field of study of ultralow frequency (ULF) waves. The session drew an international audience of scientists who reported on progress in this field. As Troitskaya had worked on many aspects of ULF waves, it was not surprising that most of the speakers addressed their remarks directly to her, commenting on how she had influenced their careers and their work. Throughout the session, a mixture of admiration for significant research contributions and affection for an exceptional human being were expressed.
