Summary
  • In this short paper we pay tribute to our long-time colleague, mentor and good friend, Paul Wild (FAA, FRS, FTSE) and briefly review his major contributions to solar radio astronomy from 1941 when he joined the CSIRO's Division of Radiophysics until 1971 when he became Chief of the Division. During this period he made important contributions to our understanding of solar physics with his development of the Penrith and Dapto radiospectrographs, the Dapto Swept-frequency Interferometer and the Culgoora Radioheliograph. These instruments revealed for the first time the presence of charged particles and shock waves travelling through the solar corona, and their potential effects on 'space weather.'
