Mavis Hinds


Mavis Hinds worked for the Meteorological Office and used LEO I for weather forecasting – the earliest use of computers for modelling the weather in the early 1950s. She became an expert in writing, running and correcting computer programs for weather forecasting. She was seen at that time as one of the first prominent female meteorologists and also the first to play a leading role in the development of Numerical Weather Prediction, not only in the UK but also worldwide.

The Royal Meteorological Society published an Obituary for Mavis Hinds in their journal Weather (vol 64, no. 10) in September 2009.
