Ralph J. Cicerone and A. D. Kirwan, Jr., began 4-year terms as co-editors of t he green-covered section of the Journal of Geophysical Research (Oceans and Atmospheres) on January 1, 1980, succeeding G. T. Csanady. Cicerone, until recently a research chemist at t he Scripps Institution of Oceanography, has just been appointed director of the Atmospheric Chemistry and Aeronomy Division of t he National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. Kirwan is an ocean physics research scientist with Science Applications, Inc., in Bryan, Texas.
The July 1980 issue of J GR Green inaugurated an 18-month experiment in which issues on oceanography and boundary layer meteorology topics (which was the July issue) will alternate with issues on aeronomy and atmospheric chemistry. Papers on atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric optics, atmospheric electricity, and climatology should be sent to Cicerone, who is handling the aeronomy and atmospheric chemistry issues. His address is NCAR, P.O. Box 3000, Boulder, Colorado 80307. Papers on physical, optical, and chemical oceanography, boundary-layer meteorology, and large-scale air-sea interactions should be sent to Kirwan, who is handling the oceanography and boundary layer meteorology issues. His address is Science Applications, Inc., Suite 101, 4348 Carter Creek Parkway, Bryan, Texas 77803. Either editor may receive papers on planetary surface properties, dynamical meteorology, cryospheric processes, and any other relevant topics.
