Sessions for the 2021 American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting are being announced. If you will be leading a session relevant to the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility or Atmospheric System Research (ASR), please let us know. We are collecting this information to be shared on the ARM and ASR websites as it is provided.
Abstracts can be submitted until the extended deadline of August 31, 2020, for the 101st AMS Annual Meeting, which is scheduled for January 10 to 14, 2021. All oral and poster sessions, panel discussions, and exhibits are moving to a virtual format. In addition, AMS is considering a smaller, in-person gathering in New Orleans, Louisiana, if circumstances allow.
The AMS meeting includes a number of interesting conferences and symposia organized by ARM/ASR researchers or relevant to ARM/ASR themes. They cover various session topics in atmospheric chemistry, aerosols, clouds, and precipitation as well as topics related to measurements and data analysis.
