Sponsors and Organizers
The Fourth Symposium on Building a Weather-Ready Nation: Enhancing Our Nation's Readiness, Responsiveness, and Resilience to High Impact Weather Events is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society.
Call for Papers
The theme for the 2016 AMS Annual Meeting is directly applicable to the NOAA–led effort “Building a Weather-Ready Nation”–-a society that is prepared for and responds to weather, water, and climate-related events. As a contribution to the overall theme, the 4th WRN is soliciting papers on the following topics:
- Impact-based Decision Support Services
- Science & technology advances (e.g., forecaster tools, social science applications, dissemination systems) that support Impact-based Decision Support Services
- Innovative academic/public/private partnerships within and across economic sectors (e.g., financial, insurance, transportation, agricultural, health, energy, etc.)
- Targeted user groups for outreach/education of weather, water, and climate threats.
Student Award Opportunities
The AMS Board on Environmental Information Processing Technologies is proud to award six student prizes at the Fourth Symposium on Building a Weather-Ready Nation: Enhancing Our Nation's Readiness, Responsiveness, and Resilience to High Impact Weather Events. These awards recognize outstanding student contributions based on an evaluation of both the submitted written paper and corresponding oral or poster presentation.
