Editor’s Comments to Williamson

This paper accurately presents Don Williamson’s lectures at Boston University and later given at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory. To experts who were present, Don’s hypothesis was far-fetched, if not simply outrageous. This incredulous reception was well-expected, since the original theoretical paper published in Progress in Oceanography [19: 87–116, 1988] had been rejected by eight other journals.
