JGR-Solid Earth and Planets editor Steven W. Squyres



Planetary science is in a time of transition from a descriptive science to a more quantitative and analytical field of study, according to Steven W. Squyres, one of the editors of the Journal of Geophysical Research-Solid Earth and Planets. This transition is “moving the discipline solidly into the realm of science traditionally covered by JGR,” Squyres said. “My objective as editor for planetology is to assure that JGR is the premier journal for the publication of scientifically rigorous work on the solid bodies of the solar system.”
