Major Weather Impacts of 2016

view in conference program

Presentation Topics

The Major Weather Events and Societal Impacts of 2016 session is a poster session and a one day oral session that includes submitted abstracts and invited speakers.  The session specifically focuses on the significant weather/water and climate events and their related societal impacts from Winter of 2015-16 through the Fall of 2016.  Presentations and posters should include:

  • A brief meteorological review of the event and observations
  • Describe why the event was major with what extremes and societal impacts were observed, and
  • Best practices on forecasting and communication of the event. 

Note:  Due to the limited number of time slots for oral presentations, authors need to contact the chairpersons prior to submitting their abstract. This helps us with planning purposes and to balance the number of invited speakers and submitted abstracts.  We also try to hold a slot or two for events that occur after the abstract deadlines.
