From Clouds to Hurricanes
A Tribute to Bob and Joanne Simpson
Bob and Joanne Simpsonís many-faceted scientific careers span most of the 20th Century. Together and individually they have made enormous contributions to the understanding of tropical meteorology. Their work ranges from improving our fundamental understanding of clouds and hurricanes to the practical applications of this understanding to improved forecasts and warnings. We honor their pioneering careers here with two interviews carried out in 1989 by Peggy LeMone and Ed Zipser and the keynote speech by Rick Anthes at the symposium honoring Bob and Joanne at the annual meeting of the American Meteorological Society in February 2003.
