Abstract

Jerome Namias Namias learned to view weather variations on a hemi- 1911-199 7 spheric scale and never abandoned that perspective or the desire to explain such variations by dynamical and Jerome Namias, whose career in extended forecast- physical—not simply statistical—arguments. Long ing operations and research spanned six decades, died and close study of the phenomena strengthened his at the age of 86 in San Diego at the Scripps Convales- forecasting intuition, but every forecast was given a conceptual hypothesis. cent Hospital, where he had lived since November 1989. Having organized five-day forecasting procedures Arriving from the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- on a rigorously professional basis during World War nology (MIT) in 1941, he became the first leader and II, Namias crystallized them in his 1947 monograph, principal developer of five-day, monthly, and seasonal Extended Forecasting by Mean Circulation Methods, forecasting work at the U.S. Weather Bureau (now the providing a framework that was able to accommodate National Weather Service; NWS). His many studies the great advances in numerical weather prediction of seeking to establish the 1950s and 1960s and the sophisticated synoptic the effect of the sea climatology of his colleagues Don Martin and Will- surface, soil mois- iam
