Prof. Joyce Penner has been selected to deliver the annual Jakob Bjerknes Lecture at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) 2021 Fall Meeting in New Orleans this coming December.
The Jacob Bjerknes Lecture was established in 1993 to honor the life of Jacob Aall Bonnevie Bjerknes (1897-1975) and his work in developing the basic theory of fronts, cyclogenesis, weather prediction, and creating quantitative models for forecasting. The lecture is presented annually to a scientist who has made a major scientific impact in advancing the basic understanding of the atmosphere and Earth’s climate.
The Bjerknes Lecture is also a part of the Bowie Lecture Series, established in1989 to commemorate the 50th presentation of the William Bowie medal, AGU’s highest honor.
Congratulations, Prof. Penner!
