We are currently at the 94th annual American Meteorological Society (AMS) show in Atlanta, Georgia! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the AMS, here’s the skinny: its the most prestigious meteorological (met) conference in the world, designed to promote and educate advances in met science. So, we’ve been coming to and speaking at this conference for years and years.
On the way here from HQ in the DC area, weather conditions were dicey! The airport was right on the 32° freezing-line requiring our plane to get de-iced. Determining when to de-ice can get complicated as you need very precise data. It underlines the importance of having a network like ours to be able to track changing conditions accurately and be able to see it on our superior radar map.
WeatherBug – Earth Networks has been selected to give 15 presentations (a record number!) on topics ranging from early warning to severe weather, total lightning, energy efficiency, and the use of mobile technology to deliver alerts. We’re also showcasing our weather and lightning networks, which are the largest in the world.
In fact, we’ll be receiving The Award for Outstanding Services to Meteorology by a Corporation for developing innovative lightning detection data products that improve severe-storm monitoring and warnings. We are honored and excited to be a recipient of this award, and are further motivated to continue with our hard work -so you can Know Before™!
Stay Safe! Know Before™.
