The year 2008 marked the 60th birthday of R. Alan Plumb, one of the great atmospheric scientists of our time. To celebrate this anniversary, a symposium was held at Columbia University on Friday and Saturday, 24–25 October 2008: this event was referred to, affectionately, with the nickname PlumbFest. A dozen invited speakers gave detailed presentations, reviewing the recent advances and the current understanding of the dynamics, transport, and chemistry of the stratosphere. In order to make the PlumbFest an event of lasting significance, it was decided to invite the symposium speakers to write chapter-length review articles, summarizing our present knowledge of the stratosphere: hence the present Festschrift volume. With heartfelt gratitude, it is dedicated to our mentor, colleague, and friend, Alan Plumb, il miglior fabbro!
