The Atmospheric Sciences Section invites a prominent scientist to deliver a lecture to honor the memory of Jule G Charney. Jule Charney was one of the dominant figures in atmospheric science in the three decades following World War II. Much of the change in meteorology from an art to a science is due to his scientific vision and his thorough commitment to people and programs in this field.
*The Bowie Lecture Series was inaugurated in 1989 to commemorate the fiftieth presentation of the William Bowie Medal, which is AGU’s highest honor and is named for AGU’s first president.
