Committee on Planned and Inadvertent Weather Modification

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


Committee members represent a breadth of scientific expertise including cloud physics, aerosol-cloud interactions, weather modification and cloud seeding, climate interventions, atmospheric chemistry, mountain meteorology, mesoscale and convective processes, and atmospheric physics.  In addition, members represent various sectors of the scientific and weather enterprise that make up the AMS community, including academic, government, and private sectors. 

Primary responsibilities of the committee members are to organize the biennial conference on Planned and Inadvertent Weather Modification, as well as to identify, represent, and provide community leadership on topics relevant to the committee's mission.  This may take the form of contributing to AMS statements, website content, AMS glossary terms, and/or building connections with other STAC committees where opportunities exist for partnership and exchange of ideas. 

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.
