Ming Xue named AMS Fellow

Congratulations to Professor Ming Xue, who has been named a Fellow at the American Meteorological Society (AMS)! Ming is our 7th current School of Meteorology faculty member to hold this distinction. Other current faculty Fellows of the AMS include Howie Bluestein, Petra Klein, Greg McFarquhar, Berrien Moore, Bob Palmer, and Dave Parsons.

The presentation of Ming’s award will take place at the Annual Meeting of the AMS in January 2020. The designation of Fellow is a great honor for Ming as new Fellows comprise not more than two-tenths of a percent of all AMS Members.

Fellows must have made outstanding contributions to the atmospheric or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences or their applications during a substantial period of years. According to the AMS these contribution might include:

  • New discoveries (insights, instruments, techniques), as indicated by papers or patents.  Particularly for government and private sector, it might be necessary to note that some documentation is proprietary or classified.
  • Development/deployment of important technology
  • Transferring technology to operations
  • Service to the community (beyond standard job duties), including collaboration with the other sectors to improve the weather and climate enterprise
  • Service to the AMS
  • Participation in the CCM program
  • Contributions to education.  For the academic sector, could be writing a textbook, revolutionizing teaching methods, running online courses or AMS short courses, or working with other sectors to make sure that formal education is relevant.   In addition to partnering with academia to make education relevant, public/private sectors have impact through maintaining up-to-date staff and providing educational opportunities.
  • Working with the public
  • Mentoring
  • Exhibiting strong ethical behavior; setting high ethical standards.

In addition, the School has numerous AMS Fellows among our Emeritus Faculty including, but not limited to, Fred Carr, Kelvin Droegemeier, Joe Friday, Jeff Kimpel, Lance Leslie, and the late Doug Lilly, Pete Lamb and Yoshi Sasaki.

Congratulations to Dr. Xue on this amazing accomplishment!
