98th American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting

Atmospheric and Environmental Research Inc. (AER) is proud to announce its important contributions to the upcoming 98th American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting in Austin the week of January 7, 2018. AER researchers across a number of weather-related disciplines, along with co-authors at other top research institutions, will present their work in the poster and oral papers listed below (AER authors in bold type), including research in advanced data assimilation, radiative transfer modeling, environmental remote sensing, algorithm and ground system development, and numerical weather prediction.  The full scientific program for the Annual Meeting is found here: https://annual.ametsoc.org/2018/index.cfm/program/
