101st AMS Annual Meeting, CLIVAR sessions of interest

AMS 101st Annual Meeting

The American Meteorological Society will be hosting its 101st Annual Meeting January 10-14 in New Orleans, Louisiana with considerations of added virtual options. The annual theme for the upcoming AMS Annual Meeting focuses on stengthening engagement with communities through our science and service. Included are a number of sessions relevant to the US CLIVAR community. Abstact submission for most conferences/symposia is August 24, 2020.
