Having established the many connections between observations of individuals, societies, and cultures and observations of weather and climate, this panel will conclude the special symposium by proposing concrete, but forward-looking ideas for strengthening the connections between the researchers and practitioners working in these areas, and for enabling the collection and analysis of new types of observations required to support a thriving weather and climate enterprise.
