HRD Director Frank Marks participates in the Pauline Morrow Austin Centenary Celebration, MIT, Cambridge, MA, 1 December 2016

31410146736_ab8e03f8b5_oHRD Director Frank Marks gave an invited presentation at the Pauline (Polly) Austin Centenary Celebration, along with other former students of Mrs. Austin (as she was known to her students): Prof. Howie Bluestein, Prof. Robert Houze, Dr. Marilyn Wolfson, and Robert Copeland. Modern meteorology would not be what it is today without the contributions from Mrs. Austin (MIT PhD ’42) during her greater than 30-year stint as the Director of MIT’s Weather and Radar Research Project. MIT recognized her influence on the field of weather radar with this centennial celebration.
