Prof. Miriam Balaban It is a pleasure to present the introduction to this Special Issue honoring Miriam Balaban. Miriam has founded and been the editor of this Journal from 1966 up to 2009. This time span includes the growth of desalination from the work of a pioneering few to today's powerful industry, with its role in the survival of humanity on this planet.

Miriam tried to help and encourage in various ways. We all know how vital meetings are in order to stay up to date, and on the other hand how difficult it is to gather there all the relevant information. Miriam has for a
