Welcome to the webpage for the Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography, and Climatology Committee of the American Meteorological Society (AMS).

Our goals are to:

  • Promote and support involvement and engagement by AMS members in national and international satellite meteorology, oceanography, and climatology meetings, events, and activities, such as the:
  1. Joint EUMETSAT-AMS Conferences
  2. Annual Symposium on New Generation Operational Environmental Satellite Systems
  3. Conference on Satellite Meteorology and Oceanography
  4. Symposium on the Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation
  5. Conference on Earth Observing Smallsats
  6. Student-Mentor Opportunities
  7. Technical Interchange and Dialogue (e.g., repurposing and satellite spectrum by the FCC, progress on reducing gaps in satellite coverage/data)
  • Support awareness of satellite meteorology, oceanography, and climatology issues and activities through the AMS committee web portal  
  • Promote excellence in satellite meteorology, oceanography, and climatology by supporting awards to recognize extraordinary people
  • Advocate for science-based decisions related to or involving satellite meteorology, oceanography, and climatology systems, techniques, products, and tools

We welcome comments and suggestions to enhance the value and impact of this webpage.
