Abstract

Yale Mintz 1916-199 1 Yale Mintz passed away at his home in Jerusalem, Israel, on 27 April 1991. He had been bravely fighting cancer. Mintz was among the pioneers who laid the foundation for the present-day numerical models for simulating general circulation of the atmosphere. Cur- rently, these models are being used all over the world for weather and climate predictions, as well as for several scientific studies focused on understanding global change. The community lost a leader of extraor- dinary caliber and devotion, a man who dedicated his life to nurturing understanding of the behavior of the earth-atmosphere system, as well as those of other planets. Only a few other meteorologists have contin- ued innovative research and hard work into their mid- seventies. Yale Mintz earned his B.A. in general humanistic ence on numerical weather prediction; this led Mintz to recognize the talent of a young Japanese scientist studies from Dartmouth College in 1937.
