Abstract

The role of cumulus clouds in local, regional, and global weather and climate that is understood today is based to a large extent on the pioneering work of Joanne Simpson. Her involvement in this work is illustrated through the experiences as my career developed. She also was, and is, an ideal model of mentorship. This paper illustrates this model using my interactions during the 1970s and early 1980s, and how they have influenced research articles up to the present.
