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.
Priorities for a New Decade: Weather, Water, and Climate
Weather, water, and climate (WWC) affect every community and every economic sector. Scientific observations and research in WWC help us meet basic human needs and create enormous opportunity for economic and societal advancement. Near-term policy choices will help determine the nation’s WWC capabilities and vulnerabilities for decades to come.
Comments will be accepted on the above statement through August 28, 2020.
This portion of the AMS website is reserved for active members only.
