About the AMS
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) promotes the development and dissemination of information and education on the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences and the advancement of their professional applications. The Society’s goals are to:
foster an environment in which the government, academic, and private sectors in the atmospheric and related sciences and services work cooperatively to serve the public good
broaden the appreciation of advances in the atmospheric and related sciences and the value these advances provide to the nation and the world
Founded in 1919, AMS has a membership of 14,000, publishes 11 atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic journals, sponsors at least 12 conferences annually, and off ers numerous programs and services.
The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is an agency that enriches life through science. Its reach extends from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean fl oor as we work to keep citizens informed of the changing environment around them.
From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings and climate monitoring to fi sheries management, coastal restoration and supporting marine commerce, NOAA’s products and services support economic vitality and aff ect more than one-third of America’s gross domestic product. NOAA’s dedicated scientists use cutting-edge research and high-tech instrumentation to provide citizens, planners, emergency managers and other decision makers with reliable information when they need it.
NOAA’s National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) is dedicated to providing timely access to global environmental data from satellites and other sources to promote, protect, and enhance the US economy, security, environment, and quality of life.
To fulfi l its responsibilities, NESDIS acquires and manages US operational environmental satellites, operates the NOAA National Data Centers, provides data and information services including Earth system monitoring, performs offi cial assessments of the environment, and conducts related research.
The NESDIS vision is to be the world’s most comprehensive source and recognized authority for satellite products, environmental information, and official assessments of the environment in support of societal and economic decisions.
About the European Meteorological Society
The EMS, founded in 1999, is an association of 36 meteorological societies in Europe. Twenty-nine Associate Members that include national meteorological and hydrological services, Europe-wide organisations, private service providers, manufacturers and educational institutions are an integral part of the community.
Its major purpose is to facilitate the exchange of information within the meteorological community in Europe and to support and enhance the activities of its Members by broadening their own role to the European scale. The major activity in that respect is the running the EMS Annual Meetings.
The Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG), founded in 1851, is Austria’s national weather service.
The product and service quality conforms to the current scientific state-of-the-art based on experience from R&D projects and a continuous development of methods.
The further development of the position as Austria’s market leader in providing meteorological, geophysical data and services as well as competency in research projects are the most important unique selling points of ZAMG.
