Taylor, Sir Geoffrey Ingram

(1886--1975)

Physicist and applied mathematician, born in London, England, UK. He studied at Cambridge, and made his career there, as reader in dynamic meteorology (1911) and research professor in physics (1923--52). He was an original researcher in a wide range of studies, particularly on turbulent motion in fluids, which he applied to meteorology and oceanography, aerodynamics, and even Jupiter's Great Red Spot. He proposed in 1934 the important idea of "dislocation' in crystals, a form of atomic misarrangement which enables the crystal to deform at a stress less than that of a perfect crystal.
