Wayne Schubert honored with symposium at AMS Centennial Meeting

The American Meteorological Society will again recognize Professor Emeritus Wayne Schubert at its 100th annual meeting by holding a symposium in his honor Jan. 15. AMS named symposia acknowledge the contributions of the most distinguished members of the field.

“The symposium will celebrate and honor Professor Schubert for his distinguished career as a researcher and educator in atmospheric science,” notes the AMS website. “His contributions have been far-reaching and pioneering, yielding profound new insights into tropical cyclones, moist convection, and the dynamics of mesoscale and synoptic-scale phenomena.”

This is Schubert’s fourth AMS honor. He was elected as a fellow in 1997. In 2016, AMS commended him with the Jule G. Charney Medal, one of the organization’s top awards, and in 2017, he was asked to deliver the Bernhard Haurwitz Memorial Lecture, in recognition of his significant contributions to atmospheric science.
