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.

  1. Renee A says:

    I am a student interested in our environment and knowing how much more we can help to deter the inevitable. I know about all the developing countries as well as our big footprint in transportation in this country.
    Can I view the lecture on line?
    Thank you,
