Dr Geoff Love Appointed Deputy Director (Services)

No. 316 August 1997

Dr Geoff Love is the new Deputy Director (Services) filling the vacancy created by the retirement in January of Dr Neil Streten.

Geoff was born and raised in Melbourne. He attended La Trobe University where he gained a BSc (Honours) in 1972.

Early Bureau Days

1975 was a pivotal year, Geoff left a teaching position in the Physics Department of the Ballarat Institute of Advanced Education to join the Bureau, and also completed his MSc. His Masters degree in upper air physics involved him in the study of weather systems, planting the seeds of a lifetime interest.

After the meteorological course at Head Office, Geoff was posted to Darwin. Be it the life style or the work, Geoff was impressed enough to remain there for 11 years. He was Regional Director 1985–87.

With his shift north, Geoff was motivated to expand his knowledge of cyclones and tropical storms. Cyclone Tracy in 1974 and the Brisbane floods in 1974 proved to be additional catalysts.

He spent three years at Colorado State University obtaining his PhD. His thesis was on tropical cyclones.

While administrative and management duties have consumed much of his time in recent years, he is hoping that in the course of his DDS duties he can again become involved in tropical meteorology.
