Julian, Paul Rowland
- Existence: 1929-
Born in 1929, Paul R. Julian joined NCAR as a scientist early in NCAR's history. He was a member of the Climate Analysis Section (CAS) in CGD (Climate and Global Dynamics). In 1971, he and Roland A. Madden co-authored a paper titled "Detection of a 40-50 day oscillation in the zonal wind in the tropical Pacific." The Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) theory developed from their research and remains influential in climate research. Julian separated from NCAR circa 1987.

Identifier: - GARP
Scope and Contents The Global Atmospheric Research Program (GARP) called for an international effort that would be spread over a decade and aimed at greatly increasing knowledge of the global behavior of the atmosphere. A global observing system and a series of field programs and computer experiments were planned as part of the Program with the goal of extending the range of large-scale weather forecasts beyond the then limit of three to five days.The GARP Records include budget information,...

Identifier: - 04-TWERLE
Scope and Contents The Tropical Wind, Energy Conversion, and Reference Level Experiment, or TWERLE, was sponsored by the Goddard Space Flight Center (NASA) and designed and implemented by NCAR and the University of Wisconsin. TWERLE was an intensive program of meteorological observations made from superpressure balloons orbiting the earth at the 150mb density level. The balloons were tracked and monitored by the Nimbus-6 satellite, providing data which increased understanding of atmospheric circulation. Crew...
