The 8th Antarctic Meteorological Observations, Modeling, & Forecasting Workshop June 9 - 12, 2013 — Madison, WI


Welcome to the website of the 8th Antarctic Meteorological Observation, Modeling, and Forecasting Workshop! The AMOMFW 2013 meeting will be held at the University of Wisconsin's Pyle Center on the shores of Lake Mendota in Madison. This workshop is organized annually by members of the AMOMFW Planning Committee across the globe. The 2012 meeting was held in Boulder, Colorado and the 2011 meeting was held in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. Prior to the 2006 meeting in Boulder, Colorado, the conference had a different name — the AWS-AMRC-AMPS Meeting. After the 2005 meeting in Columbus, Ohio, it was decided to re-organize and re-name the meeting to better encompass all groups attending the meetings.

This workshop brings together those with research and operational/logistical interests in Antarctic meteorology and forecasting and related disciplines. As in the past, the annual activities and status of the AMRC, AWS, and AMPS efforts will be addressed, and feedback and results from their user communities will be solicited. More broadly, this workshop also is a forum for current results and ideas in Antarctic meteorology, numerical weather prediction, and weather forecasting, from contributors around the world. There will be discussions on the relationships among international efforts and Antarctic forecasting, logistical support, and science. We welcome papers and posters on these topics.

We invite you to explore this website, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
