Abstract

Two Fellows of the AM S have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Robert Serafin, director of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), and Wilfried H. Brutsaert, professor of civil and environmental engineering, Cornell University, were 2 of 79 members elected to NAE on 11 February 1994. Election to the academy is among the highest professional distinctions for an engineer. Membership honors those who have made "important contributions to engineering theory and practice" and those who have demonstrated "unusual accomplishment in the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology." Serafin's nomination describes his profound influence on the science and practice of meteorology through his personal contributions to ad- vanced instrumentation, particularly radar. It recognizes his guiding role in the development of modern tools for observation, data processing, and display and commends his leadership in national and international bodies that have set the course for critical research and operations worldwide. He earned a B.S. degree from the University of Notre Dame, an M.S. Robert Serafin degree from Northwestern University, and a Ph.D. from the Illinois Institute of Technology (NT), all in electrical engineering. He worked from 1960 to 1962 at Hazeltine Research Corpo- ration and
