NEW! Starting with our January 2009 issue, all AMS members will have exclusive cover-to-cover access to the new BAMS Digital Edition--a dynamic, interactive reading experience. Advertisements placed in BAMS will now also be available in the online BAMS digital edition. Advertisers will also have the option to use animations in their ads for the digital edition. You may view a sample of the BAMS Digital Edition (Flash required) at:

BAMS (published since 1920 and issued monthly) features editorials, survey articles, conference summaries, and correspondence devoted to the latest news and research in the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences. It also includes professional and membership news and announcements, book reviews, meeting programs, and a professional directory. By advertising in BAMS, you will reach a paid subscriber base of over 14 000 AMS members—many of whom are responsible for the purchase of their organization's equipment and services. The Bulletin is also sent to over 300 institutional subscribers in meteorological, oceanic, and hydrologic services, business and industry, universities, libraries, government agencies, and research institutions. Through BAMS, you reach thousands of government and private-sector meteorologists, supervisors of university and college meteorological facilities, research scientists, and a host of other prospective buyers.


While each issues contains the latest reports of scientific research and other information vital to AMS members, researchers, consultants, teachers, and students, many readers consider the following special issues to be "keepers"-those they'll pick up over and over again throughout the year. These issues provide a unique opportunity for advertisers to prolong reader recognition of their products, publications, and programs.

SEPTEMBER: Scholarship/Fellowship Issue
This issue includes a listing of scholarship and fellowship recipients. Along with AMS, leading environmental science and service corporations, government agencies, and members support the scholarships and fellowships.

NOVEMBER: Meeting Program Issue
This issue includes a synopses of conferences and symposia being offered at the upcoming Annual Meeting as well as information on activities and programs of general interest. It is used as an itinerary and meeting planner for AMS members and meeting participants.

Listee is billed automatically at the end of the year for the following year. There is a $25 charge for changes or corrections. (Sample shown below.)
