Dr Michael Manton Chief of BMRCNo. 269 December 1984
Dr Michael Manton, the Chief of the new Bureau of Meteorology Research Centre took up duty at Head Office on 3 December.
Director Dr John Zillman, who announced Dr Manton's appointment last month, described him as one of Australia's leading atmospheric research scientists, eminently qualified to head the new national meteorological research centre.
He has published extensively in scientific journals on meteorology and oceanography. His work in meteorology has been mainly on the development of methods to predict winds and temperatures in the lower layers of the atmosphere and he has also contributed to studies on the properties of clouds.
Dr Manton has worked in research institutions in-North America and Europe, and last year spent nine months at the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts, which produces each day a computerised ten-day global weather forecast.
