John B. Hovermale 1938-1994 John B. Hovermale, superintendent of the Marine Meteorology Division, Naval Research Laboratory, Monterey, California, died on 8 July 1994. He was a widely known and respected leader in the atmospheric and marine sciences, having specialized in numerical weather prediction. Early in his career, he collaborated in developing the first unfiltered numerical weather prediction model in the world. That model, operated by the National Meteorological Center of the U.S. National Weather Service, was the basis of operational weather forecasts across the United States and the world for many years. He later developed the first primitive equation numerical weather prediction model for forecasting the paths of hurricanes and other tropical storms. For this effort he received the U.S. Department of Commerce's Gold Medal, its highest civilian award. As scientific and technical leader of the U.S. Navy's research activities in the oceanic and atmospheric sciences at Monterey since 1985, Hovermale has been a key force in linking the atmospheric and oceanic research communities toward outstanding collaborative research in environmental prediction, tactical support, and environmental database management. He John B. Hovermale was recently awarded the navy's prestigious Meritorious Civilian Service Award "for his innovative research and development leadership" as
