Dear ARTS users,

some of you will have heard this already, but probably not all:

We mourn the loss of Michael Mishchenko, longterm chief editor of JQSRT, and author of light scattering textbooks. Over the years, he helped the development of ARTS and the community around it in many ways. As editor he defended the value of papers on model development at a time when this was not self-understood, and there were no other journals dedicated to the topic. As scientist and scattering expert he was always happy to share his wisdom and help us overcome practical obstacles and theoretical confusions. And as a person he was always open, friendly and supportive. Michael Mishchenko died on July 21. The official obituary page of NASA GISS is We will miss him very much.
