Summary

The Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS) will host its 54th Congress from May 24-28, 2020 at the Delta Hotels by Marriott, Ottawa City Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The CMOS Congress in 2020 in Ottawa has the unique opportunity to highlight to policy makers the national observations, research and services that contribute substantively to reduction of society’s risk to extreme weather, climate and environmental events and to outline the challenges facing us in managing our Future Earth environment and societal resilience.

In addition, the Congress can foster cross-disciplinary dialogue amongst research and managerial professionals in meteorology, oceanography, hydrology, earth sciences, environment and social science on challenges facing us nationally and globally.

What measures can be taken to ensure that we have the necessary national and global infrastructure and expertise in place to maintain societal resilience?

Special sessions will be held not only on the use of weather, climate and environmental prediction for risk reduction but also on: (i) protecting Canada’s vast Arctic and sub-Arctic as weather, climate and environment changes and (ii) strengthening cooperation to reduce risks to agriculture and other sectors posed by changing weather and climate.

The Themes under which scientific and technical sessions will be organized are, in no order of priority:

  • Risks and Impacts of Climate Change on the Resilience of Major Sectors
  • Tornadoes and Other Extreme Weather Events Impacting Canadians
  • Oceans and Ice in a Changing Climate
  • Floods and Water Crises in Canada and Globally
  • Impacts of A Changing Climate in the Arctic
  • Climate-Weather-Water and Food
  • Pollution of the Air, Water and Ecosystems
  • The Cryosphere – Impacts Locally to Globally

Please submit abstracts online via the CMOS web site before 21 February 2020 (extended from February 14).
