Operational Meteorology in the Antarctic (OpMet)

The SCAR Operational Meteorology in the Antarctic (Op Met) Expert Group will be holding a meeting during the Workshop on Antarctic Meteorology and Climate, with the time to be determined.
If you are not in the OpMet Expert Group and are interested in learning more about this, please inquire at the workshop.

Date: July 16 - 18, 2018
Location: Pyle Center, 702 Langdon St, Madison, WI, USA

The 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 papers and posters on these topics.
