Globalization

Our field has always been inherently global. But today’s emerging global challenges are different from what we experienced in AMS’s first century. We are fortunate that revolutionary technology – from the Internet to mobile communications – now provide global-scale tools we can use to address these challenges. This fund will:

  • Begin an international travel grant program to encourage AMS members to participate in international conferences and to encourage scientists in underrepresented nations to attend AMS conferences

  • Create a travel fund to support the International Forum of Meteorological Societies (IFMS) meetings
