Abstract

James W . Telford some clouds grow and precipitate while others dissi- 1928-1999 pate soon after formation. However, one of the earli- est successes was in making some definitive Jim Telford passed measurements of turbulence in the clear convective away on 18 May 1999 at boundary layer flying low over the flat, hot, and dry his home in Reno, Ne- interior of Australia. (Although ideal for probing the vada, at the age of 71. convective boundary layer, it was definitely not the Telford, with the Desert most comfortable place to do research—especially Research Institute (DRI) without air conditioning). They also made extensive in Reno since 1967, was a measurements of updraft structures and entrainment pioneer in making dy- processes in cumulus clouds. namical and thermody- The vertical velocity and temperature measure- namical measurements ments led to some excellent early observational veri- from aircraft. fication of the concept of the mixed layer, as first Starting in the late 1950s and early 1960s, Telford, hypothesized by Jim Deardorff on the basis of large together with Jack Warner, developed within the eddy numerical simulations of the convective bound- Cloud Physics Laboratory at CSIRO in Sydney, Aus- ary layer.
