Edward Norton Lorenz (1917-2008)

The geophysical modeling community :arrow: lost one of its greatest thinkers and modelers on April 16, 2008. Ed is considered the father of determinstic chaos and predictability. He lived a long and productive life. His contributions to the field of predictability are enormous and long standing. We all have played with his amaizing strange attractors models. I meet Ed in the early 90's when I was a Postdoc at Harvard University. I recall being blown away when attended one his frequent seminars at MIT. I had hard time understanding what he was talking about. We invited him to give a seminar at Harvard a year later. This time, I was prepared by reading the relevant papers prior to his seminar. He is well known for writting very elegant and compact computer codes. He certainly will be missed...
