Obituary—Dr. Robert W. Talbot
We were deeply shocked and saddened to learn that Dr. Robert W. Talbot, Editor-in-Chief of Atmosphere, passed away on 2 February 2020, following a two-year battle with cancer.
Dr. Talbot pioneered high-accuracy measurements of atmospheric nitric acid and mercury from aircraft and served in leadership roles in several major air quality field campaigns around the globe. He was also the founding director of the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences at University of Houston, and created a state-of-the-art laboratory facility for mercury and methane. He led three Special Issues over the years:
The editorial team of the journal Atmosphere remembers Dr. Talbot for his outstandingly successful editorship from 2014, raising the standing of the journal significantly, thereby supporting the careers of many in the community and advancing our knowledge of the atmosphere. He will be greatly missed by many friends, colleagues, former students, and the authors whose papers he read, appreciated, and promoted as Editor-in-Chief. His death is a loss to the academic community as well as a personal loss to anyone who has come into contact with him.
We offer our condolences to his wife, children, family, friends, and colleagues.
