Jim Fleming, “At the Cutting Edge: Harry Wexler and the Emergence of Atmospheric Science,” Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow Network (CoCoRAHS) online seminar, Fort Collins, CO, Thursday, May 9, 2013.

“This presentation tells the story of the emergence of the new interdisciplinary field of atmospheric science in the twentieth century as shaped by the influences of multiple technologies. It does so from the perspective of MIT-trained meteorologist Harry Wexler (1911-1962), an American student of the Bergen School of air mass analysis, head of research in the US Weather Bureau, and one of the most influential meteorologists of the twentieth century, whose career spanned the middle decades of the twentieth century…By telling the story through Wexler’s eyes, a more personal story can be told.”
