Houghton Lecture History
Since Houghton Lectures were first organised in the fall of 1995, over 2 dozen scientists from all over the world and a wide range of different disciplines within the fields of Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate have visited and shared their expertise with our members. Below is a record of all those who have spent time with us in the Green Building.
Henry Houghton served for 25 years as Head of the Department of Meteorology (predecessor of what has become the Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate).
During that long period, the Department established an unsurpassed standard of excellence in these fields. On his death, Prof. Houghton left the bulk of his estate to the new Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences to establish the Henry Houghton Fund. Houghton Lectures are supported every year by the Fund.
Outstanding scientists from around the world are invited to visit for periods ranging from a week to a semester. Typically, they have given short-courses ranging from 3 to 20 lectures on some topic of interest to students and faculty.
Houghton Lecturer recommendations are welcome at all times. Contact Raf Ferrari with your suggestions.
