The biography of Bob Sykes, professor of meteorology at the State University College at Oswego, New York from 1961-1983. Sykes was instrumental in our current understanding of the weather phenomenon known as lake-effect snow, as well as playing an important role in forecasting the storm systems that traveled over Greenland, where he was stationed in WW II, and headed to war-torn Europe. Bob Sykes is also credited with being an important role model for many of today's meteorologists.
