23rd Conference on Applied Climatology Call For Papers

The 23rd Conference on Applied Climatology was held 26–28 June 2017.  Sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, and organized by the AMS Committee on Applied Climatology and American Association of State Climatologists, the 23rd Conference on Applied Climatology was held in conjunction with the American Association of State Climatologists Annual Meeting in Asheville, North Carolina. 

            Stemming from the AMS Annual Meeting Theme of “Observations Lead the Way” the 23rd Conference on Applied Climatology built a devoted session around speakers and presentations on applied climate science utilizing and/or the building of observational weather and climate datasets in a variety of forms (e.g. surface observations, reanalysis data, proxy data, etc.).  There was also a special session devoted to Dr. Kelly Redmond.

The Committee on Applied Climatology also encouraged papers on the traditional topics of applied climatology:

  • Data quality and climate data sets
  • Linkages between weather and climate
  • Sectoral-based science and adaptation (including ecosystems, natural resources, agriculture, energy, coastal, and human systems)
  • Climate Services (including assessment of science, product, and service needs, assessment of impacts, and communication of climate science
  • Extreme events (monitoring, prediction, and impacts) such as drought, floods, severe weather outbreaks, freeze events, heat waves, etc.

The $95 abstract fee included the submission of your abstract, the posting of your extended abstract, and the uploading and recording of your presentation which is archived on the AMS Web site.

             The Committee of Applied Climatology of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) was proud to award Best Student Prizes for best student presentation, runner-up student presentation, best student poster, and runner-up student poster at the 23rd Conference on Applied Climatology held 26–28 June 2017 in Asheville, North Carolina. These awards recognized outstanding student contributions based on an evaluation of both the submitted written paper and corresponding oral and poster presentation. 

     Authors of accepted presentations were notified via e-mail by 28 March 2017.  All abstracts, extended abstracts and presentations are available on the AMS website at no cost.
