AMS Weather Band Community and Citizen Science Symposium

AMS Weather Band Community and Citizen Science Symposium

We are excited to announce the AMS Weather Band's first Community and Citizen Science Symposium!

Please join us for this two day, virtual event, that will showcase citizen and community science projects and programs related to weather and the atmospheric sciences. It will take place on Friday, January 21, and Saturday, January 22 12:00 - 5:00 ET.

Our goal with this event is to provide a valuable and unique experience for Weather Band members and friends, while also promoting and celebrating the important role that community and citizen science play in the atmospheric sciences.

Friday’s program will focus on exploring existing community and citizen science programs. We’ll hear from leaders with NASA’s GLOBE program, the National Weather Service, CoCoRaHS, and AGU’s Thriving Earth Exchange on how they work with community and citizen science, how and where citizen scientists make the biggest impact, and how your own observations can contribute to everything from community safety to satellite data. 

Saturday’s program is all about the science in your own backyard. Speakers will present their work as storm spotters, their methods for collecting and analyzing climate observations, how different weather factors can change our physical health, and much more!

Get inspired by the atmospheric sciences.
