Poster Session Climate Tools: Showcase of New Climate Data Tools and Services

Monday, 7 January 2019: 4:00 PM-6:00 PM
Hall 4 (Phoenix Convention Center - West and North Buildings)
Host: 24th Conference on Applied Climatology
Trent Ford, Southern Illinois Univ., Geography & Environmental Resources, Carbondale, IL

Climatology and meteorology are data-driven disciplines, and advancements in these fields are influenced by the quality and accessibility of data and information. Climate data and tools are also valuable instruments for communication between climate scientists and decision-makers. This session provides a forum for climate data producers and tool developers to showcase their latest and greatest climate tools to AMS attendees. We welcome submissions of web-based interfaces for climate datasets and monitoring networks, data analysis and visualization tools, and other novel climate tools. Presenters will exhibit their web-based tools on laptops or tablets at stations set within a poster session environment to allow customized demonstration of their tools to attendees.
