Jacob Bjerknes Lecture

Basic Information

Established in 1994, the Bjerknes Lecture honors the life of Jacob Aall Bonnevie Bjerknes (1987-1975) and his work in developing the basic theory of fronts and cyclogenesis and weather prediction and the development of quantitative models for that purpose.
