GRL Editor Alex Dessler



Alexander J. Dessler tries to make Geohysical Research Letters (GRL) a journal that people are eager to open as soon as it arrives in the mail. “GRL should be a lively, interesting journal,” said Dessler, a professor of space physics at Rice University and editor-in- chief of GRL since January 1986. “An editor gives a journal its style, for good or ill,” he explained.
