Memoirs

Solar Physics is publishing an annual series of memoirs by distinguished solar scientists. 

The memoir series has three main goals: (1) to honor colleagues for distinguished careers, (2) to provide long-term personal perspectives on solar science; and (3) to help educate younger members of the community. 

The selection committee is chaired by Ed Cliver and includes Peng-Fei Chen, Jim Klimchuk, K.D. Leka, Eric Priest, Kazunari Shibata, Sami Solanki, Astrid Veronig, and Michael Wheatland. Please contact any of them with suggestions for next year’s honoree.
