Abstract

"Millenniu m 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. A selection of essays will be published throughout the 2000 volume year. We thank those Fellows who have and continue to share their thoughts. We hope you find "Millennium Perspectives" interesting as well as thought provoking. The GARP Atlantic Tropical Experiment (GATE), convection by radars and aircraft led us to realize that which took place in the tropical Atlantic in the sum- convection, at least in that part of the world, organized mer of 1974, was the largest and most ambitious field more often than not into bands of cumulonimbi that effort dedicated to study of the atmosphere and ocean produced thick anvils and large areas of stratiform rain. in the twentieth century.
