This volume examines future strategies in meteorology and climatology that encompass the atmospheric community and related scientists, service providers, manufacturers and users.

While the central focus of the volume is on the application of meteorology for society, a wide spectrum of scientific and application topics in atmospheric sciences is also addressed, including atmosphere and the water cycle, forecasting the weather from one day to one year ahead, climatology, and meteorology and society.

NOTE: Annals volumes are available for sale as individual books or as a journal. Members of the New York Academy of Science receive full-text access to the Annals online and discounts on print volumes.
