Abstract

John Stewart physics; with him he brought Stormy Weather re- Marshall search. By the mid-1950s, the contribution of the 1911-1992 Stormy Weather Group had included definitive work on scattering by clouds and precipitation; the charac- Joh n Stewart ter of the radar echoes they produce; and the appli- Marshall, a pioneer cation of radar to the study of storms, the analysis of of radar meteorol- rain and snow development, and weather forecast- ogy, died on 20 ing. Some of the topics still closely associated with March 1992 at the Marshall's name are drop-size distributions, snow age of 80. He had trails, radar signal fluctuation, coalescence, nucle- been a professor of ation, rain development, and special radar displays, physics, and later such as CAPPI and HARPI. He had entered meteo- physics and me- rology at a time of unprecedented growth and oppor- teorology, at McGill University from 1945 until his retire- tunity, and had made full use of the opportunity by ment in 1979. He was widely known for research in locating himself in a senior physics department and physics of clouds and precipitation and had a strong attracting a family of exceptionally gifted students influence on the conduct of
