Hello Everyone,

I'm happy to announce that Robert Houze will be the second 2006 Thompson 
Lecturer.  Dr. Houze is a professor in the Department of Atmospheric 
Sciences at the University of Washington.  He is renowned for his work 
in many aspects of mesoscale and microscale meteorology, a topic of 
great interest to many in the NCAR community.   He has published 
approximately 200 research articles and a popular graduate textbook on 
cloud dynamics.

The lectureship will take place at NCAR on October 31st and November 
1st.  For those unfamiliar with the Thompson Lectures, they provide a 
unique opportunity for NCAR postdocs and graduate students to have 
significant interactions with a prominent scientist.  Included during 
the two day event are roundtable discussions on career development and 
current research, ample opportunities for individual interactions, and 
two lectures open to the entire NCAR community.  More information can be 
found at the ASP website 

Titles and abstracts for Prof. Houze's seminars and a schedule for his 
visit will be available soon.  For more information on his recent (and 
not so recent) work, please visit his webpage 

We also welcome the help of any postdocs who are interested in helping 
with the planning of this or future Thompson Lectures.
