NCICS at AMS 2021

Logo for the 2021 American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting

Many of us at NCICS look forward to kicking off each new year by participating in the Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). Although we won’t be gathering in person this year, 2021’s virtual AMS meeting still offers a unique opportunity to interact and share outcomes of research and engagement activities with colleagues from the climate and weather community.

One advantage to this year’s virtual environment is that many presentations will be recorded in advance and available for on-demand viewing, eliminating the problem of making tough choices between sessions of interest. The pre-recorded presentations will be supplemented by scheduled live question-and-answer sessions as well as some live presentations, including an invited Core Science Keynote presentation by Ken Kunkel entitled Extreme Precipitation: The Merging Streams of Meteorology, Climatology, and Hydrology at 4:10pm EST on Thursday, January 14.

NCICS staff are presenters, co-authors, or co-chairs on more than two dozen events this year. See below for the complete schedule of activities. See for more details on this year’s event.
