Abstract

At MIT and at Travelers, Saltzman continued his dent with Victor Starr, depicting every imaginable harmonic analysis of the wavelike oscillations in the kind of average, integral, fluctuation, and perturbation. jet stream, the maintenance of the je t stream and trade No matter what the current scientific fad may have winds, and the origin and development of winter been, Saltzman continued to follow his own indepen- storms. This methodology was widely adopted for dent and creative path, always trying to further our describing the scale dependence of momentum, heat understanding of climate and how it changes. In the and moisture fluxes, and energy transformations in the words of one of his former students, "Barry simply atmosphere. The different behavior of storm-scale and loved doing research." In recognition of this lifetime planetary-scale waves can be illustrated in this way. of important scientific contributions, he received the During this period, he also developed a theory of the 1998 Carl Gustaf Rossby Research Medal, the high- distribution of climate on earth, using a simple energy est award from the AMS. balance approach. In 1968, he became a professor in Beyond his productive research career, Saltzman the Geology and Geophysics Department at Yale
