Cheng Fang Chosen to Write Solar Physics Memoir for 2018
We are pleased to announce that Cheng Fang has been selected to write the Solar Physics Memoir for 2018.
Professor Fang pioneered the development of Chinese solar physics and laid the foundation for many fruitful collaborations with the west. He designed and built the Solar Tower Telescope in Nanjing and the ONSET telescope in Yunnan, China. He was elected to be an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1995.
The Solar Physics 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 Paul Cally, Peng-Fei Chen, Sarah Gibson, Jim Klimchuk, Eric Priest, Kazunari Shibata, Sami Solanki, and Astrid Veronig. Please contact any of them with suggestions for next year’s honoree.
