The AMS Annual Meeting is the world’s largest yearly gathering for the weather, water, and climate community. It brings together great minds from a diverse set of scientific disciplines – helping attendees make career-long professional contact and life-long friends while learning from the very top people in the atmospheric sciences.

Join fellow scientists, educators, students, and other professionals from across the weather, water, and climate community in Phoenix, Arizona from 6–10 January, 2019 to share, learn, and collaborate.
