PEMBROKE PINES, FL, August 26, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Jim Lushine has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Upon graduating from high school in 1962, Mr. Lushine began a 42-year meteorological career with the National Weather Service that included both forecasting and research. In 1972 he was promoted to work at the National Hurricane Center in Miami, FL., a position he would hold until his retirement in 2005. Even though his career has been filled with highlights including the Bhola tropical cyclone, hurricane Andrew and a Mass Immigration Emergency, he is especially proud of becoming recognized as the "Father of Rip Current Forecasting" due to his landmark paper he authored involving rip current deaths and how they relate to specific weather and oceanographic conditions.
As an expert in his field, Mr. Lushine earned a Bachelor of Science in meteorology from The Pennsylvania State University.
