The 13th History Symposium
The theme for the 2015 AMS Annual Meeting is “Fulfilling the Vision of Weather, Water, and Climate Information for Every Need, Time, and Place”. People, businesses, and governments depend increasingly on weather, water, and climate information matched to their specific needs. We are converging on a day when such information is integrated into nearly every decision or action people take. This revolution in highly targeted, customized information - delivered when and where it is most useful - will make our lives safer, more productive, and more enjoyable. The challenge for our community is this: collaborate and innovate to develop – and ultimately deliver – actionable, user-specific weather, water, and climate information across all spatial and temporal scales in support of our nation’s safety, health, and prosperity. The meeting will explore the many topics required for our community to implement this vision.
The 13th History Symposium solicits contributions for its general session relating to the overarching theme of the meeting. They might address but are not limited to such areas as : History of Weather, Water and Climate Information Systems ; Lessons Learned from Past Information Systems ; Leveraging Advances in Technology ; and others. Topics should be analyzed through the lens of history.
