This past week (April 16-20th) was the American Meteorological Society (AMS) 30th Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology where experts in the field gathered to discuss their research. The conference is more specialized than the AMS Annual Meeting, providing a forum for better discussions and debate on a variety of hot research topics (such as the Madden-Julian Oscillation and tropical cyclogenesis). In addition, it is known for being one of the best for graduate students as all students are given the opportunity to give a talk (rather than a poster) if they wish. This week was no exception with excellent talks from many of our RSMAS Meteorology and Physical Oceanography graduate students.
I was fortunate enough to give a talk on my recent work with the impacts of climate change on tropical cyclone tracks, which focused primarily on the North Atlantic region. As with all conferences, you never know who will be in your audience. Dr. Jeff Masters (co-founder of Weather Underground) happened to be in the audience during my talk and discussed my work on his blog. I was very excited about all the positive feedback I received about my work and cannot wait for the next conference.
