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.  

The “Earth System Science” theme for the 2016 AMS Annual Meeting emphasizes that the growing knowledge of the academic and research communities about our Earth system, and the greatly expanding need for practitioners and industry partnerships, is a strength of AMS.  AMS brings together the physical, chemical, and biological study of the Earth, necessitating closer professional and personal relationships between the weather, water and climate enterprise, facilitating a better dialogue and allowing important decisions to be made by policy makers, decision makers and the public across the entire globe.  Therefore, to better understand and articulate common issues, challenges, and opportunities and discuss possible areas for international discussion and collaboration, papers for these Special Sessions are solicited on the following:

  • Innovative Academic/Public/Private Partnerships Within and Across Economic Sectors between US and Asia (e.g., financial, insurance, transportation, agricultural, health, energy, etc.) [Joint with the Fourth Symposium on the Weather and Climate Enterprise and the Board on Global Strategies]
  • Scientific and Technological Advancements Resulting from Joint Research and Coordinated Observations in Tropical Meteorology, Hydrometeorology, and High-Impact Weather Events (e.g., hurricanes and typhoons) in the US and Asia [Joint with AMS Board on Global Strategies, Chinese-American Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (COAA), the 30th Conference on Hydrology, and the AMS Committee on Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography and Climatology]
  • Integration of In-situ and Satellite-derived Observations into Data Assimilation and Weather, Water and Climate Modeling Systems for the Improvement of Forecasts [Joint with the Fourth AMS Symposium on the Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA), the Board on Global Strategies, and the Committee on Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography and Climatology]
  • Advancing and Leveraging Research into Operations, and Operations Feedback into Research Between and Among International Partners [Joint with the Sixth Conference on the Transition of Research to Operations (6R2O) and the Board on Global Strategies (BGS)]
  • Working Toward a More Weather, Water and Climate-Ready World—Issues and Opportunities [Joint with the 4th Weather Ready Nation (4WRN) Symposium and the Board on Global Strategies]
