97th AMS Annual Meeting | 22–26 January 2017 | Seattle, WA

Lance Bosart Symposium

view in conference program

Presentation Topics

Owing to the breadth of Prof. Bosart’s contributions, papers are solicited on research in both the middle latitudes and tropics, and on the convective scale, mesoscale, and synoptic/planetary scales. Presenters are also encouraged to incorporate aspects of Weather Forecasting or Meteorological Education. Because speaking slots are limited and some speakers will be invited, we anticipate that many submissions will be part of a poster session. We encourage Prof. Bosart’s numerous colleagues and former students to consider a submission to this symposium honoring him for his many contributions.

Attendees are also invited to attend a luncheon in honor of Prof. Bosart.  More information can be found here.

We encourage students to be involved in the symposium. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top two student posters based on originality of research and quality of presentation.
