AMS 2016 Annual Meeting: Earth System Science in Service to Society
The American Meterology Society's (AMS) Annual Meeting is the world’s largest yearly gathering for the weather, water, and climate community. It brings together great minds from a diverse set of scientific disciplines – helping attendees make career-long professional contact and life-long friends while learning from the very top people in the atmospheric sciences.
96th Annual Meeting Theme: Earth System Science in Service to Society
The primary idea that motivated the words above is to bring the many parts of AMS into a common theme. The “Earth System Science” theme emphasizes that the growing knowledge of the academic and research communities about our Earth system is a strength of AMS. AMS brings together the physical, chemical, and biological study of the Earth, allowing important decisions to be made by policymakers and the public.
