Committee on Tropical Meteorology and Tropical Cyclones

Starts: 01-01-2024
Ends: 01-15-2027
Location: Online Opportunity


Committee members participate in planning for two meetings, the biennial Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology and the Symposium on Tropical Meteorology and Tropical Cyclones at the AMS Annual Meeting. Other activities include selection of recipients for STAC Awards, the Banner Miller Award and the Joanne Simpson Award, occasional definition of terms for the AMS Glossary, and other occasional activities.
Our work requires tremendous coordination, commitment, and collaboration between tens of thousands of people, all of whom are dedicated to success. AMS has created a structure of volunteer support for this coordination and collaboration that includes six commissions overseeing 140+ boards and committees.

The information provided in this application will be provided to the various commissioners as they begin making appointments for the committees and boards of their commission. Please note that most appointments are made in the fall for terms that begin in January, so you may not hear anything for some time after submitting this form. Also note that great effort is put into maintaining balance on committees and boards in terms of sector, discipline, etc., so you may not be used on a specific committee or board immediately.
