May-June Geophysics delayed
The May-June issue of Geophysics will arrive a bit late to print subscribers, but we think readers will find it well worth the wait. This issue was produced by a new composition vendor and contains more than 700 pages, including 63 technical articles by more than 120 authors.
The July–August issue will be accompanied by a special supplement containing 21 papers on seismic interferometry. Editors Kees Wapenaar, Deyan Draganov, and Johan Robertsson were instrumental in compiling these papers by physicists, mathematicians, and geophysicists in this emerging area of important research.
