Published: 5Mar2019

It is with great sadness that I convey the news that Roddy Rogers, Professor Emeritus in our department, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, has passed away on February 20.

Roddy, a giant in our field, was a world-renowned scientist, particularly in the areas of cloud physics and radar meteorology. His text, co-authored with Professor Yau, entitled “A short course in Cloud Physics” has been used by students and faculty throughout the globe.

Professor Rogers served our department for 33 years until his retirement in 1998. He also served our department as Chair for several years until 1987.

He will be sorely missed by all of us.
