The American Meteorological Society is hosting their 100th Annual Meeting in Boston, MA from January 12-16, 2020. Founded in 1919, the American Meteorological Society (AMS) is the nation’s premier scientific and professional organization promoting and disseminating information about the atmospheric, oceanic, and hydrologic sciences. They have more than 13,000 members and this includes researchers, educators, students, enthusiasts, broadcasters and other professionals in weather, water, and climate.
NOAA’s Office of Weather and Air Quality (OWAQ) supports world-class weather and air quality research to save lives, reduce property damage, and enhance the national economy. Our program staff will be presenting throughout the week on weather and air quality research, including hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, heavy precipitation, and air pollution. Additionally, OWAQ will discuss how we utilize social science to learn how to deal with the uncertainties weather presents and to inform its engagement and communication with researchers, funders, and the public.
