AMS-2012

 AMS-2012

The central theme of the 2012 AMS Annual Meeting will be technology and its profound impacts on research, operations, the business of our environmental sciences, and the public. These advancements in environmental awareness and knowledge have greatly lowered the human suffering and loss of life in the United States and around the world from the deadly and costly effects of extreme weather and ecological disasters. This meeting, appropriately scheduled for the Crescent City of New Orleans, which has lived through the traumas of Hurricane Katrina and Deepwater Horizon’s oil spill, is not intended to be “technology worship.” Rather, it will focus on past, current, and future advances that should be of wide interest and value to AMS members.
