AMS Chapter of the Year for 2007


As home to several of our nation’s key assets related to climate data and information including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), and the Department of Defense’s Strategic Climate Information Service, comprised of the U.S. Air Force’s 14th Weather Squadron and the U.S. Navy’s Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Detachment, Asheville is home to numerous experts working in atmospheric sciences and other related disciplines. The focus of the Asheville Chapter is to capitalize on these resources and offer presenters at our monthly meetings who are truly experts in their field. The meetings are a great place to hear the latest about what is happening in atmospheric sciences and to network with a variety of people, from PhDs to weather enthusiasts. Come join us at our next meeting. All meetings are open to the public.
