Takashi Sasamori eral circulation model, for which he formulated effi- 1930-200 1 cient parameterizations of radiative transfer. He joined the University of Illinois as a professor of meteorol- ogy in 1978. Except for summer visits to Los Alamos and Argonne National Laboratories, Sasamori re- mained at Illinois until his retirement in 1993. Sasamori's research was remarkable for its breadth. His 30 published papers address problems in radiative transfer, radiative modeling, interactions of radiation with dynamics, numerical modeling of the boundary layer, instabilities of large-scale atmospheric flows, and the circulations of the atmospheres of Venus and Jupiter. The thoughtfulness and originality of his re- search is reflected in the fact that several of his papers from the 1960s and 1970s are still widely cited. Sasamori's work invariably featured mathematical rigor, tempered by physical reasoning. A fine example is provided in what is perhaps his best known paper, "A Linear Harmonic Analysis of Atmospheric Motion with Radiative Dissipation." After several pages of mathematical analysis, Sasamori closes the paper with an intuitive diagram, in which he uses tanks and pipes Takashi Sasamori, emeritus professor of atmo- to represent the transformations of energy within the spheric sciences at the University of Illinois, died
