Presidential Forum

Sunday, 23 January, 2022 4:00–5:00 PM

The 2022 AMS Presidential Forum will engage attendees in a discussion with an exceptionally distinguished panel representing international, national, regional and local institutions engaged in advancing environmental security in the face of rapid and long-term physical, societal, and technological changes.

Presidential Sessions

Given the theme of the meeting is “Environmental Security: weather, water and climate for a more secure world,” the organized presidential sessions will revolve around the Annual Meeting theme and the five environmental security pillars as well as environmental justice, history, and science and diplomacy, which often have several linkages and dependencies on one another.

Town Hall Meetings

Town Halls provide a valuable opportunity for extended interactive two-way dialogue among the Weather, Water, and Climate Enterprise and other interested groups for the benefit of the AMS community. These engagements can include a wide range of topic areas and formats that do not typically fit into the traditional AMS Annual Meeting program.

Core Science Keynotes

This series of Invited Talks at AMS Annual Meetings are intended to highlight the history, foundational knowledge, and research challenges that drive our field forward.

Award Winners Presentations

Each year, AMS presents over 30 awards to leaders in the weather, water, and climate community. Many of the 2021 winners will present at our Annual Meeting.

New Fellow Presentations

Each year, AMS elects Fellows that have exemplified outstanding contributions to the atmospheric or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences or their applications during a substantial period of years. Be sure to catch a presentation made by one of new 2021 Fellows

Named Symposia


Richard H. Johnson Symposium

This symposium will celebrate and honor Professor Richard Johnson for his distinguished career as a researcher and educator in atmospheric science. His career has led to important discoveries on tropical and midlatitude convection, and his contributions to many international field campaigns set a new standard for collecting and analyzing unique observations. Papers for the symposium are solicited on topics of tropical convection, mesoscale convective systems, monsoons and other tropical/subtropical oscillations, atmospheric soundings, field observations, and other related areas. The program will primarily consist of invited speakers, so we anticipate that most submissions will be presented in a poster session.

Kevin Trenberth Symposium

We invite and encourage you to attend this symposium honoring Dr. Kevin E. Trenberth as he enters into retirement after many years of influential research and community service. His career has been characterized by distinct and exceptional accomplishments that have significantly advanced our understanding of many key scientific issues related to climate variability and climate change. Through publications of over 270 journal articles and many book chapters and technical notes, tireless service on prominent national and international committees and panels, numerous invited talks, and steadfast communication of science to the public, Dr. Trenberth’s influence on scientific thought and understanding of Earth’s climate system has few parallels.
