Abstract

"Millennium Perspectives" is a special year-long section celebrating the new millennium. AMS Fellows, as recognized leaders in the fields served by the AMS, were asked to reflect on the close of this millennium and contribute brief essays on what they believe were significant issues or developments in the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences. They were also asked to predict what they believe will be the great challenges or developments yet to come. Durin g the twentieth century, meteorology The payoff resulting from these twin advances has evolved from an arcane art to an exciting multidisci- been great, both in operational weather prediction and plinary science. This evolution has had a profound warnings of severe weather and for increasing our un- effect on our ability to predict weather and climate and derstanding of an enormous variety of atmospheric to understand the complex nonlinear earth system, in- phenomena, ranging from tornadoes to the entire cli- cluding the atmosphere, oceans, and other parts of the mate system. hydrosphere, cryosphere, land surfaces, and the bio- In the first part of the twenty-first century, I see the sphere.
