The AMOS National Conference has been running annually since 1994 and is Australia’s pre-eminent conference profiling the latest finding and applications of meteorology, climate science and oceanography.
Founded in 1919, the American Meteorological Society (AMS) is the United States’ premier scientific and professional organization promoting and disseminating information about the atmospheric, oceanic and, hydrologic sciences. WithAMS has more than 13,000 members, including scientists, researchers, educators, broadcast meteorologists, students, weather enthusiasts, and other professionals in the fields of weather, water, and climate. AMS is committed to strengthening the incredible work being done across the public, private, and academic sectors. The AMS community knows that collaboration and information sharing are critical to ensuring that society benefits from the best, most current scientific knowledge and understanding available. Today, AMS provides global leadership in the fields of water, weather, and climate sciences.
AMS has been running the triennial International Conference on South Hemisphere Meteorology and Oceanography (ICSHMO) since 1983, bringing together researchers from around the world working on problems related to the Southern Hemisphere
