Arthur was always the most positive, benevolent, humorous person. He faced his illness with great courage and grace, maintaining his sense of humor and dedication to his life’s work right up to the end.
Arthur was not only a superb scientist; he was also a gracious and thoughtful person. He forged international friendships with colleagues and partners around the word, while still finding time to mentor junior and mid-level scientists. His presence, leadership and generous personality set an example for all of us to follow. He was the consummate team player and will be greatly missed.
Arthur truly made GPM a global effort with a global team. He excelled in providing scientific oversight for achieving GPM’s many science objectives and application goals, including delivering high-resolution precipitation data in near real time for better understanding, monitoring and prediction of global precipitation systems and high-impact weather events such as hurricanes.
