Andrei Sergeevich Monin graduated from the Moscow State University in 1942. He worked at the Central Forecasting Institute from 1946 to 1951 and at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the USSR Academy of Sciences from 1951 to 1965. In 1963 he began teaching as a professor at Moscow State University. From 1965, Monin directed the P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanography of the USSR Academy of Sciences. He was a Member of CPSU from 1945 and from 1972 a Corresponding Member of the USSR Academy of Sciences. He also was a Foreign Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and of the US National Academy of Sciences from 1976. He also was the recipient of the A.A. Friedman Prize in 1993.
Most of the research of Monin was devoted to atmospheric physics, general turbulence and dynamic processes in the ocean and in the atmosphere. Monin for instance investigated the physical bases of long-term weather forecast and substantiated the importance of the interaction between the ocean and the atmosphere in the formation of weather patterns and climate. The two publications of 1950 are typical examples of this era in the scientific career of Monin. In the 1960s, he published the successful book on Statistical hydromechanics, which was followed later by books in the eddy formation in the oceans, by Geophysical fluid dynamics and by an introduction to the theory of climate. He counted in the second half of the 20th century to the great researchers in oceanography and weather forecast. Monin received the Order of October Revolution.
