The Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society and the American Meteorological Society, are delighted to announce the Joint 25th AMOS National Conference and 12th International Conference for Southern Hemisphere Meteorology and Oceanography, AMOS-ICSHMO 2018, to be held at UNSW Sydney from 5 to 9 February 2018.
AMOS-ICSHMO 2018 will bring together experts in meteorology, oceanography and other climate sciences from around the world as well as government representatives, NGOs, businesses and the media to focus on problems specific to the Southern Hemisphere.
We will have over 40 thematic sessions covering topics in meteorology, oceanography and other climate sciences under the broad themes of weather, ocean processes, atmospheric processes, climate, land surface processes, Antarctic science, climate services and community engagement.
The primary theme of the conference is translating our science into practical outcomes for the benefit of society. To this end, there will be bespoke sessions on climate service for decision makers, impact and risk assessment of the weather extremes affecting our region, improving urban environments, and integration of renewables into the energy system. We will also be running a number of workshops bringing together early career researchers with industry groups, training educators and scientists how to better communicate their science, and bringing together television weather forecasters to discusses the incorporation of climate change information into broadcasts.
