As announced during the symposium last june in Brest, there will be a special collection (no longer called special issue by AMS because the papers can go into any AMS journal or any month) in the Journal of Physical Oceanography as a tribute to Bach-Lien Hua.
Mike Spall (JPO chief editor) sent us some information about how to proceed. When you go to submit your paper in JPO there will be a question asking if the submission is part of a special collection. In that menu there will be one called "In Honor of Bach Lien Hua".
Note that it will take some time for AMS to get this set up but if you are ready to submit before it is active you can have your paper linked to the special collection any time before it is finally accepted so you do not have to wait for it to be ready.
