In a new research article published in the Bulletin of American Meteorological Society, AER helped to define the proper meaning and use of the term flash drought.

More than 40 years ago, Dr. Nien Dak Sze and his wife, Cecilia, founded Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER) to help governments and businesses better understand environmental risks and transform leading-edge science into new products and services. Today, our vision is the same, but our scope is wider. This November, we’ll mark the tenth anniversary of our acquisition by ISO, the predecessor company of Verisk Analytics. As we celebrate this significant milestone, we’re refreshing our logo to reflect our vision and our commitment to you, our customers. I’d like to share my thoughts on why we’re updating our logo and what it means to you.
