AMS Washington Forum

2-4 April 2013
AAAS Building, Washington, DC

2013 Theme

“The Value and Sustainability of the Weather, Water and Climate Enterprise”

Recent research indicates that the annual economic impact of weather events is as much as $485 billion in the United States. Improved weather forecasts and prediction capabilities will emerge as Earth-observational data from more accurate and higher-resolution satellites lead to improved Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) forecast models. These models are further enables by today’s more powerful computers, allowing scientists to more realistically represent changes in atmospheric conditions. The economic and societal benefits of accurate weather forecasts have a tremendous scalable impact on our nation that can provide for improved efficiencies in our daily lives, help grow a better economy, and increase public safety from life-saving alerts due to early warming of extreme weather events.

Organizers

The Board on Enterprise Economic Development, part of the AMS Commission on the Weather and Climate Enterprise.
