The world’s largest yearly conference for the weather, water, and climate science community takes place this month to further meteorological sciences. Our scientists and staff are participating in the virtual and in-person American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting from January 28–February 1, 2024 in Baltimore, Maryland.
The 104th AMS Annual Meeting includes talks, posters, panel discussions, and town halls. A mix of scientists, educators, students, and other professionals will participate in the hybrid event. The theme this year is "Living in a Changing Environment".
As is typical, NCEI scientists and staff will contribute to many sessions, presentations, and posters this year. Find information about conference activities and presenters from the National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service. You can also follow #AMS2024 and #NCEIatAMS on social media for more updates on the AMS Annual Meeting and our participation.
Accessibility and Wellness
One of the AMS objectives is to create a healthy, inclusive, and accessible environment. As such, they are including numerous accommodations, such as accessibility for new mothers, those with disabilities, people who speak foreign languages, all-gender accommodations, etc.
Communicating Our Science
Every day, NCEI publicly shares scientific work—which informs the public and decision makers—creating awareness and an understanding of our science, services, and products. We strive to provide current information and benefit society in the midst of an ever-changing landscape of technology and knowledge. Our scientists and staff regularly speak at conferences and events, develop visual representations of scientific findings, write papers and reports, and create web and social media content. All of this is done with the goal of making our data, information, and science accessible to a broad audience.
