The theme for the 2018 AMS Annual Meeting is “Transforming Communication in the Weather, Water, and Climate Enterprise”. Communication is an essential part of the weather, climate, and water enterprise. Significant challenges remain in communicating emergency actions simply, expressing probabilistic/uncertainty information clearly, honing our predictive skills, and perfecting our data collection and analysis techniques. These issues are brought into sharp focus in coastal regions: with steadily-expanding human activity in this increasingly vulnerable region, clear and accurate communication of weather-related hazards and uncertainty is becoming increasingly important. The 16th Symposium on the Coastal Environment will explore the various challenges and opportunities in the communication of weather in the coastal zones of the world. Session Topics include:

  • Joint Session: Air Pollution in the Coastal Environment
  • Joint Session: Big Data in the Coastal Environment
  • Joint Session: High-Performance Computing Applications in the Coastal Zone
  • Joint Session: Regional and Coastal Hydrodynamic Model Coupling: (a) Storm Surge and Coastal Hazards; (b) Hydrological Impacts; (c) Biogeochemical Impacts
  • Creating and Communicating Medium- to Seasonal and Long-Term Forecasts in the Coastal Environment
  • Novel Observational Techniques for the Coastal Environment: (a) Drones, Remote Sensing and Regional Networks; (b) Data Assimilation and Management
  • Communicating Scientific Uncertainty in the Coastal Environment
  • Case studies
