The 2022 American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting will be held virtually from January 23 to 27, 2022. Due to a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases, AMS decided to eliminate in-person sessions, which were to be held in Houston. Read the AMS announcement from January 6, 2022. The meeting will now be 100% virtual.
The theme for the 102nd AMS Annual Meeting is “Environmental Security: Weather, water, and climate for a more secure world.” The motivation for this theme?
"We are seeing a growing influence of weather, water, and climate on the security of nations and their peoples due to a rapidly increasing global population (including a growing percentage that are migrating to coastal areas and/or away from areas of crises) coupled with evolving human and national security impacts from the disruption of weather and climate norms... The theme of Environmental Security will inform AMS members and meeting attendees on the connections between our scientific field and larger societal impacts, and it will demonstrate how important our contributions are to the basic security needs of the United States and the world, particularly for vulnerable groups."
