Presentation to Professor Richard P. Wayne
A volume of papers published in his honour was presented to Professor Richard Wayne in Cambridge at a dinner on Wednesday 14 December 2005 attended by a group of distinguished atmospheric scientists. The volume was prepared to mark Professor Wayne’s 67th birthday the preceding week and his impending retirement in 2006. Dr Michiel Thijssen performed the presentation on behalf of Elsevier, Amsterdam, who are the publishers of the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology. Professor Wayne was the founding Editor of this journal, and was Editor-in-Chief for more than 30 years. Drs Tony Cox and Tim Wallington were the guest Editors, and they collected together some 28 original scientific papers written in honour of Professor Wayne. Authors of these papers included former doctoral students of Professor Wayne, research assistants in his group and visitors to it, collaborators on national and international cooperative products, and several of those who had welcomed Professor Wayne into their own laboratories at one time or another. The papers in this dedicated volume covered a range of topics in laboratory studies addressing atmospheric chemistry, and reflected many of the interests that Professor Wayne has had during some 45 years of active research.
