Charle s H . B. Priestley search teams in the world. He served as officer-in- 1915-199 8 charge of the section and in 1955 became chief of di- vision, a position he held for 26 years. Charles H. B. Priestley, Priestley's research interests in meteorology were first chief of CSIRO's Di- broad, and he made significant and original contribu- vision of Atmospheric tions to many areas, including the dynamics of the at- Research in Melbourne, mospheric general circulation, free and forced Australia, and one of the convection in the atmosphere near the ground, the pioneers of modern me- handover of the vertical fluxes from small-scale tur- teorology, died on 18 bulence close to the earth's surface into the larger-scale May 1998 after several motions above, and the assessment of surface heat flux years of ill health. and evaporation using large-scale parameters. His in- Priestley was born in terests in atmospheric boundary layer problems devel- Highgate, London, on 8 oped early on during his seven years spent in the July 1915, the third of four children, and graduated British Meteorological Office, where he met Bill with first-class honors in applied mathematics from Swinbank, a future colleague in Australia.
