Welcome to the website of the 9th Antarctic Meteorological Observation, Modeling, and Forecasting Workshop! The AMOMFW 2014 meeting will be held at the College of Charleston's, School of Education Health and Human Performance Center. This workshop is organized annually by members of the AMOMFW Planning Committee across the globe. The 2013 meeting was held in Madison, Wisconsin and the 2012 meeting was held in Boulder, Colorado. 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.
The AMOMFW is endorsed by the International Commission on Polar Meteorology (ICPM), which is one of the commissions of the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences.
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.
