Ninth Annual Symposium on Future Operational Environmental Satellite Systems

Conferences and Symposia Conference Program
View by day or program, includes author index and personal scheduler

The theme for the 2013 AMS Annual Meeting is “Taking Predictions to the Next Level: Expanding Beyond Today's Weather, Water, and Climate Forecasting and Projections”.  Over the past 60 years the meteorological community has made tremendous strides in making prediction a fundamental part of its scientific and operational/service heritage through the development and application of complex numerical models involving the atmosphere, ocean, land and cryosphere components of the Earth System. This theme will serve as a catalyst for the 2013 AMS annual meeting by focusing the attention of the research and operational communities, including those who are involved in accelerating the transition of research results into operations.  Furthermore, the increasing use of predictions by decision makers throughout federal, state, and local emergency management government agencies and by private/commercial sectors will serve as an important component for this annual meeting along with the extension of predictive capabilities into a broader domain, including public health, food security, air and water quality, alternative energy and responses to climate trends.

The symposium will consist of oral and poster presentations with emphasis on how NPP, JPSS, GOES-R and other new generation operational environmental satellite systems will enhance our nation’s ability to observe, predict, and communicate weather and climate data at a new level of fidelity and timeliness.  The symposium will address capabilities of these new generation satellite systems to improve weather, climate, and other environmental data products; enhance user application and services, and blend and fuse satellite data from multiple sources.
