AMS 100th Annual Meeting, CLIVAR sessions of interest

AMS 100th Anniversary

The American Meteorological Society will be hosting its 100th Annual Meeting January 12-16 in Boston, Massachusetts. The annual theme for the upcoming AMS Annual Meeting is The AMS Past, Present and Future: Linking Information to Knowledge to Society (LINKS). Included are a number of sessions relevant to the US CLIVAR community. Abstract deadlines have been extended. Be sure to check out the Programs page for deadline dates.
