In Memoriam

 

The Journal of Marine Research notes, with regret, the passing of Editor Emeritus George Veronis on June 30, 2019. George was a distinguished figure within the oceanographic world and, among his other accomplishments, was well known  for his investigations into convection and the dynamics of basin-scale ocean circulation. He received his PhD in applied mathematics from Brown University in 1954 and then held research positions at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, before joining the Yale Department of Geology & Geophysics as professor in 1966. He edited the Journal with great success for 37 years, from 1974 through 2009. He was department chair from 1976 to 1979, head of the Applied Mathematics Program from 1979 to 1993, and named the Henry Barnard Davis Professor of Geophysics and Applied Science in 1985.

 

George was one of the founders, in 1959, of the Woods Hole summer Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Program, and a sustained, enthusiastic participant in its softball team. Among the many honors that George received in his lifetime was membership in the National Academy of Sciences.

 

He will be sorely missed.

 

An appreciation and biographical tribute on the colorful and productive career of George Veronis was published in the Journal of Marine Research in 2010, and is available for download here.
