Statements in Process

Statements Accepting Comments

AMS Statements that are being considered by the AMS Council for approval are posted on the AMS Web site at least thirty days before the Council vote. The Council may consider a statement either at one of the two regularly scheduled meetings each year, or at any time in between using e-mail discussion and electronic balloting. In addition, statement preparation does not follow a fixed schedule so statements may come up for consideration at any time of the year. AMS Members who are interested in providing input to statements are encouraged to check the AMS Web site regularly to see if any are under review at that time.

Draft Statements Open for Full Member Comment:

Best Practices on Data Management: Accepted Practices for Data Management
Comments due by 10 July 2019.

Research and education in the atmospheric and related sciences has been consistently dependent on data. Given the expansion and sophistication of the data networks, increasing volumes of both observations and model data, in addition to the need for analysis, it is critical to consider data management strategies and accepted practices for optimal use.
