American Meteorological Society focuses on the future

Matt Daniels reports from the 2013 American Meteorological Society meeting in Austin, Texas.

The 93rd American Meteorological Society is hosting its annual meeting in Austin, Texas this week from January 6-10, 2013. As mentioned in a previous post, the theme for this meeting is “Taking Predictions to the Next Level: Expanding Beyond Today’s Weather, Water, and Climate Forecasting and Projections”. I attended the 13th Presidential Forum which started up the meeting on Monday, January 7, 2013. In this forum, former President Dr. Louis Uccellini welcomed everyone for attending the annual meeting and discussed the importance of going above and beyond today’s weather and seeing how it can improve through advancements in science, social media, and how meteorologists can make a bigger impact on society. There have been numerous discussions on various papers that have been written for the past couple of days. There have been sessions discussing some of the most recent weather and climate events such as Hurricane Sandy that affected parts of the Caribbean and eastern United States, warming in the Arctic, and even talks regarding the April 27, 2011 tornado outbreak that killed hundreds across Alabama and the Southeast.
