Peter Webster Symposium at the Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society

On 9 January 2018, at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society in Austin TX, a Symposium [link] honored Dr. Peter J. Webster for his seminal contributions to the study of tropical dynamics and monsoons. His work on tropical wave dynamics, monsoons, and tropical atmosphere-ocean coupling have guided the research in these fields for the past several decades. Particularly, his studies on tropical-extratropical interaction, monsoon processes, predictability and prediction, and monsoon-ENSO connections have become classics with paramount influences.

The day-long Symposium included presentations from some of Webster’s former students and postdocs, along with some international leaders in the field of tropical meteorology.

The Symposium booklet [link] provides the Symposium program, summarizes Dr. Webster’s career and lists his students and postdocs.

Dr. Webster’s former students traveled to Austin from China, South America and Australia.
