Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is a Special Issue to honour Dr Jackson Rea Herring who passed away peacefully on May 26, 2022 in Boulder, Colorado after a short illness. Jack was a Senior Scientist at the Mesoscale Microscale Meteorology Division at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) at Boulder, Colorado, the position he had held since 1978. Jack earned his B.S. in Physics from Wake Forrest College (1953) and his M.S. and Ph.D., also in Physics, from the University of North Carolina (1956 and 1959). Upon graduating, Jack worked as a physicist at the Theoretical Division, Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., and Washington, D.C. (1959–1960), the Institute for Space Studies, New York City, N.Y. (1960–1964), and, again, at the Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. (1964–1972). He was then a Long-Term Visitor and then a Senior Scientist at the Advanced Science Program (ASP) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) at Boulder, Colorado (1972–1978), and starting in 1978, he was a Senior Scientist at the Mesoscale Research Section of Mesoscale Microscale Meteorology Division of NCAR. Jack was Senior Postdoctoral Fellow at the Advanced Study Program at NCAR (1972), Green Scholar at the University of California, San Diego (I.G.P.P.; 1978), and Professeur associé à l'lnstitut de Mécanique de Grenoble (1988). He served on the Advisory Board of Editors for Meteorology and Oceanography, World Scientific Publishing Co., was Associate Editor of Physics of Fluids, was Associate of the La Jolla Institute and served on the Advisory Committee of the NASA-Stanford Center for Turbulence Research (1988-1989).

We welcome papers in all the subject areas that Jack had an interest in and contributed to, and we urge all his colleagues and collaborators over the years to contribute to this Special Issue and thus honor his legacy to the profession and celebrate his life-loving and vivid personality.
