Call for Papers

The theme for the 2016 AMS Annual Meeting, “Earth System Science in Service to Society”, weaves the many parts of AMS into a common core. Emphasizing the academic and research strength of AMS, the theme also connects that research to the benefits that society gains from our science. AMS merges the physical, chemical, and biological study of the Earth with human-centered “domains of action”: (1) Observing, (2) Analysis and research leading to understanding, (3) Modeling and prediction, and (4) Social sciences – how people deal with Earth. “Service to Society” explicitly evokes the integrated and complementary government and commercial enterprise that the AMS has done so much to foster over the last decade.  The 2016 meeting integrates AMS’ proud, nearly 100-year history of making a positive difference in the lives of our citizens by continually communicating the advances of its science research to the public and policy makers.

      As always, papers on traditional topics in applied climatology are sought, including, but not limited to:

Kenneth C. Crawford Named Session (Joint with the 18th Symposium on Meteorological Observations and Instrumentation): As a founding leader of mesoscale networks, Dr. Kenneth Crawford specialized in the unique overlap of meteorological observations and applied meteorology and applied climatology.  This session will highlight talks on these topics by colleagues and former students of Dr. Crawford.
