Craig F. Bohren is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Meteorology at the Pennsylvania State University. In 1988 he was elected a Fellow of the Optical Society of America. He is author of several books, his most recent book being 'Atmospheric Thermodynamics' (with Bruce A. Albrecht). Professor Bohren is the first recipient of the American Meteorological Society's Louis J. Battan Award for Authors.Eugene E. Clothiaux is an Associate Professor of Meteorology at the Pennsylvania State University. He remained at the Pennsylvania State University as a Research Associate from 1994-1999 before becoming an Assistant Professor in 1999. Prof. Clothiaux has written several contributions on millimeter-wave cloud radar and atmospheric radiation.

Craig F. Bohren is Distinguished Professor of Meteorology at Pennsylvania State University. He is the author of two popular scientific books, Clouds in a Glass of Beer (for which he received the American Meteorological Society's Louis J. Battan Author's Award) and What Light Through Yonder Window Breaks?, also available from Wiley. DONALD R. HUFFMAN is Regents Professor of Physics at the University of Arizona. In 1983 he and colleague Wolfgang Kratschmer produced the first sample of C60, buckminsterfullerene. The pair was honored with the MRS medal and shared in the 1994 Hewlett-Packard Europhysics Prize.
