Abstract

eeh, Joseph G. Gal wa y Severe thunderstorm forecasting was still a new 1922-199 8 discipline when he started with the severe weather unit, and many of the factors that influence storm develop- ment were unknown. Galway took this as a challenge Joseph G. Galway and performed pioneering research into the role the je t passed away on 29 June stream plays in tornadic storm development. He also 1998 in Kansas City, Mis- did groundbreaking work with tornado outbreak cli- souri. He was the first fore- matology. Arguably, Galway's most significant con- caster assigned to the Na- tribution was the Lifted Index that he developed in the tional Weather Service's severe weather unit when it mid-1950s. This landmark paper appeared in the "Cor- was established in 1952. In respondence" section of the Bulletin of the American a very real way, he was the Meteorological Society, rather than as an article. NWS' s first "tornado As if all of this (and we have by no means exhausted forecaster." the list of his scientific publications) was not enough, Galway was born in Galway was a dedicated historian of severe storms Cambridge, Massachusetts, on 3 December 1922.
