It is difficult to believe that I have never written a Quarterdeck column thanking all of the guest editors who have worked with me to publish special issues of Oceanography. Simply put, we could not do it without them. Guest editors develop the table of contents of special issues and invite authors to contribute manuscripts. They conduct the peer review and ride herd on their authors to get their manuscripts in and revised and final files to Oceanography. Guest editors often endure relentless pestering from Oceanography’s editor—me—because deadlines must be met and the magazine published on time. There is a fairly narrow margin of error. The few subtle places where their names appear in the magazine or on the Oceanography website don’t come close to honoring the efforts, often heroic, of the guest editors. Here I list all of the marvelous guest editors with whom I have worked over the last eight years as Oceanography editor. I send all of them a big hearty THANK YOU!!!
