COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the international updates related to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 15th Workshop on Antarctic Meteorology and Climate (WAMC) and the 5th Year of Polar Prediction in the Southern Hemisphere (YOPP-SH) meeting in Hobart, Tasmania from July 29-31, 2020. We would like to request those who planned on attending WAMC to send a status report, if they wish. These can be in the form of a short PowerPoint or as an extended abstract in the American Meteorological Society format. The reports can be sent to tnorton2 [at] wisc.edu and orendorf [at] wisc.edu so they can be displayed here on the WAMC 2020 page. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we look forward to reconvening in 2021.

This workshop is organized annually by members of the WAMC Planning Committee across the globe. The WAMC 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 Antarctic Meteorological Research Center (AMRC), Automatic Weather Station (AWS), and Antarctic Mesoscale Prediction System (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 presentations and workshop activities on these topics.
