Abstract

Dr. Yitzhak Mahrer, an Israeli atmospheric scientist, was one of the earliest contributors to the Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (RAMS), a leading model with abilities on a wide range of atmospheric scales. He was involved in many complex-terrain and coastal atmospheric dynamic studies, and was among the pioneers of air-pollution modeling, especially over the Eastern Mediterranean. Dr. Mahrer deceased on September 2017, and RAMS community has lost one of its founders, with his shy smile, funny remarks, and bright mind. While he also led multiple fields observational campaigns and graduated many students as a Professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, we hereby present only a brief overview of his scientific contribution to the atmospheric modeling community.
