Maintaining high quality of papers while decreasing review time is among the goals set by Journal of Geophysical Research editor William L. Chameides, associate professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology's School of Geophysical Sciences. On January 1 Chameides officially began his 4-year term as editor of the section of the journal that emphasizes atmospheric chemistry and physics. He succeeds Ralph J. Cicerone.
Chameides says he will follow in Cicerone's tradition by maintaining the high quality of the journal and the broad scope of papers published relating to atmospheric science. He hopes to broaden further the journal's scope by incorporating more multidisciplinary papers. Increasingly, atmospheric scientists are becoming concerned with problems relating to biogeochemical cycles, global pollution and climate, global habitability, cloud physics, and acid rain, Chameides explained. The solutions to these problems, he added, will require the collaboration of scientists with capabilities in a wide variety of disciplines. It is Chameides' hope that JGR will serve as a forum for the exchange of ideas and new findings among this broad and multidisciplinary community of scientists.
