Synopsis Invited Feedback Importance (/10, author rated :-) )
This paper anticipated what became known as chaos in weather systems. It basically shows how the atmospheric pressure field can be modelled using 2-D orthogonal polynomials and these used to predict trajectories. It had immediate applications for modelling pollutant dispersal, (acid rain in Europe was blamed justifiably to a certain extent on industrial activity in Britain). However, one of the things Ian and I noticed was how sensitive the trajectory termination was in certain weather conditions. In other words in certain conditions, the atmosphere is entirely chaotic. Unfortunately we didn't use the word, so a missed opportunity for fame and fortune. Ah well, we were only meteorologists. Its a good paper.None yet10
