ASU Reception with the
American Meteorological Society

Sustainability@ASU

Join the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting attendees for a free evening reception at the Arizona Science Center, sponsored by Arizona State University. The reception is a chance to interact with AMS Climatologists and will also feature a demonstration of Water Sim —an interactive decision support tool for water resources, developed by the Decision Center for A Desert City at Arizona State University.

One of the evening’s highlights will be a new AMS program called "23|5 Talks." This hour-long set of public talks will follow the format of the well-known Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) talks and will feature thought-provoking talks from AMS scientists on their views and perspectives on weather, water, and climate. Speakers will present topics of interest to the general public and Phoenix in particular. Although Arizona is quite familiar with extreme weather, alternating between drought and flash flooding, dust storms and extreme heat, the uncertainty of future climate brings significant concerns particularly with regard to the water and energy nexus.

This event is co-sponsored by the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, Decision Center for a Desert City, ASU School of Geographic Sciences and Urban Planning, and the Arizona Science Center
