This method (Amadore Method) and all the published articles of Dr. Amadore had significantly contributed to the advancement of atmospheric science and hydrometeorology in the country. His written technical and scientific articles enriched with scientific information from his meteorological researches on storm surges, tropical cyclone, disaster management cycle, typhoon climatology, structures and development were published in local and international scientific journals. 6. JULIAN BANZON Julian Banzon is a Filipino chemist recognized for his researched methods of producing alternative fuels. He was the one who experimented with the production of ethyl esters fuels from sugarcane and coconut, and invented a means of extracting residual coconut oil by a chemical process rather than a physical process. 7.RAMON BARBA Ramon Barba is a Filipino scientist who is best known for his advancements in mango farming research and tropical tree physiology. He invented techniques to promote crop flowering using a potassium nitrate spray. This made the Philippines to be the leading exporter of mangoes and mango products. 8.CLARE R. BALTAZAR Dr. Clare R. Baltazar has outstandingly and consistently maintained high standards of achievement throughout her academic life. She was born on November 1, 1927. She was the first to publish a book with an authoritative text on Philippine insects. These numerous publications on Philippine Insects especially on Philippine Hymenoptera are very significant to Science for they lay the Groundwork for future biological control in the Philippines. Dr. Baltazar has discovered of 8 and one subgenus of Hymenoptera and 108 new species of the Philippine parasitic Wasp's. which are the important contributions to the field of Science. She received the Rizal Pro Patria Award in Entomology in 1980.
