The 24nd Conference on Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography, and Climatology is organized by the AMS Committee on Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography, and Climatology and is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society.
Papers are being requested on applications of satellite observations for enhanced scientific understanding, improved forecast skill, and more environmentally informed decision-making for meteorological, oceanographic, climatological, and other environmental problems. There will be a special session on environmental impacts during the COVID-19 pandemic period.
Papers, possibly including demonstrations, are also requested on the use of proving grounds and testbeds as critical elements of new satellite capability preparation and user engagement.
Applications areas include:
In addition papers are being accepted on the following topics submitted from the AMS community:
There will be joint sessions with the 17th Annual Symposium on Operational Environmental Satellite Systems and the 23rd Conference on Air-Sea Interaction, 9th AMS Symposium on the Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation, and 4th Conference on Earth Observing SmallSats.
Joint SatMet Call for Papers
The 24th Conference on Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography and Climatology is pleased to host Student Presentation Awards at the 2021 AMS Annual Meeting. Award certificates and cash prizes will be given for the best Student oral and poster presentations. Awards will be given separately for undergraduate and graduate students. Students who wish to be considered for these awards should indicate so when submitting their abstract. In order to be considered for an award, the Student must be the lead and presenting author.
Three criteria will be used for posters and orals: (1) Originality and depth of research accomplished; (2) Quality of oral presentation by student; (3) Quality of slides or poster for presentation.
The 24th Conference on Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography and Climatology will be co-hosting the 7th Annual Speed Networking Event. The Event allows students and early career professionals to network with mentors via “speed networking” where the mentors (meteorology and allied discipline professionals) roam between tables at set intervals introducing the students and early professionals to a wide array of professions in the field of meteorology and allied disciplines. The speed networking will include a social with light hors d'oeuvres, providing a great time for open networking. This allows the students and the mentors of their selected discipline to have extended conversations after their speed-mentoring.
