The Antarctic Meteorological Research Center (AMRC) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison announces the 8th Antarctic Meteorological Observing, Modeling, and Forecasting Workshop (AMOMFW). It will be held 10-12 June 2013, at the University of Wisconsin's Pyle Center in Madison, Wisconsin. There will be an informal icebreaker on 9 June.
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 observing (e.g. Automatic Weather Stations) and modeling (Antarctic Mesoscale Prediction System) 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. Papers and posters on these topics are welcomed.
