Welcome to the virtual 13th Symposium on Fire and Forest Meteorology (13FFM). This Symposium is rescheduled from the originally planned May 2020 meeting in Palm Springs, California. A call for abstracts was not announced for this meeting as instead we moved last year’s accepted abstracts to this virtual event. It would be great to see all of you in person, so after an on-screen appearance this time, AMS and the FFM committee will be exploring options for 2023.
We are following AMS’ recommended guidelines for presenting at a virtual conference. You should have received instructions for oral and poster presentations, respectively. We will do the best we can to make this Symposium as interactive as possible, so be prepared to unmute your microphone, including during the networking sessions at the end of each day.
Our thanks to all who submitted papers last year and plan to attend this year. As always, it was enjoyable working with the AMS staff, in the forefront Cati Iannarilli and Claudia Gorski, for their immeasurable help with the many organizational things behind the scenes necessary to make the Symposium happen, especially during a year of extreme challenges.
Over 60 presentations will be prerecorded and available online for advance viewing. Interactive question sessions follow over three days. There are presenters from five countries with a great mix of academia, government agency, and the private sector representation. We welcome you all.
Tim Brown, Nick Nauslar, Brian Potter, Kara Yedinak – 13FFM Co-Chairpersons
