Andrew F. Bunker was a research scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) for over 30 years until his death in 1979. He was interested in the energy exchanges between the atmosphere and ocean, and devised techniques for their measurement from aircraft. He participated in many of the major oceanic field experiments of the 1960s and 1970s with Woods Hole research aircraft. His work in air-sea interaction culminated in a climatological atlas of air-sea fluxes for the Atlantic Ocean. We document here his career and scientific work in his memory.
