The 2014 AMS annual meeting will be in Atlanta Georgia, February 2 – 6, 2014. The selected theme is Extreme Weather—Climate and the Built Environment: New Perspectives Opportunities, and Tools. “The theme is designed to explore the 'focal point' combining scientific inquiry, technological advances, societal implications, and public awareness through the lens of past, current, and future extreme weather and climate events. Herein, we broadly define weather and climate extreme events to include, but not be limited to, severe storms, tornados, tropical cyclones, floods, winter storms, drought, temperature extremes, derechos, aircraft turbulence, wildfires, extreme solar activity, and ocean-land responses (e.g. storm surges, landslides, debris flows). It is most relevant to the NOAA goal and the National Weather Service vision for 'A Weather-Ready Nation – a society that is prepared for and responds to weather related events.'”
