Michael E. McIntyre
The 1999 Julius Bartels Medal is awarded to Michael E. McIntyre for his outstanding contributions towards the understanding of middle atmosphere dynamics and stratosphere-troposphere exchange.
Michael E. McIntyre, University of Cambridge, UK, is the second recipient of the Julius Bartels Medal for his outstanding theoretical work in atmospheric dynamics. His fundamental concepts of breaking waves dynamics provided new insight into the field of stratospheric transport processes and stratospheric-tropospheric exchange, with spin-offs even for the Sun’s interior.
