Unidata's AMS booth
This year's annual American Meteorological Society meeting, was held January
6-10 in Phoenix, Arizona. While we missed interacting with those in our community
who could not attend due to the shutdown of the Federal government, we were happy
to see many others participating in the meeting and at our booth in the exhibit hall.
As always, we were also glad
to meet so many prospective community members at the AMS Student Conference.
With so much going on at the conference, we can't cover everything here. Instead,
we present some highlights as recalled by UPC staff members who attended.
