First circular and call for Expressions of Interest

We are pleased to announce that the Meteorological Society of New Zealand’s annual conference will be held in Dunedin at Otago Museum. The conference will cover all aspects of climatology and meteorology, from observations, numerical predictions to research and climate projections.
The Society invites contributions on any topic associated with meteorology and climate. These include (but are not limited to) the large-scale circulation of the atmosphere and oceans, ocean-atmosphere interactions and physical oceanography, remote sensing, atmospheric chemistry, urban meteorology, air pollution, hydrological applications, agricultural- and bio-meteorology, weather and climate hazards and impacts, including global change, and the history of New Zealand meteorology and oceanography.
There will be three presentation options:

  1. Poster presentations, with an associated one-minute introduction.
  2. Standard oral presentations, of 20 minute duration, including Q/A.
  3. Short, Pecha-Kucha type oral presentations, with questions for all speakers at the end of the session.

The number of oral presentations will be limited. In addition, we will have a number of invited speakers giving keynote presentations at the beginning of each day.
Please complete the Google Form to indicate your expressions of interest, including your preferred style of presentation, by 31 July 2017. Please direct any questions about the conference to Stefanie Kremser, stefanie@bodekerscientific.com. A small registration fee for the conference will be set in August. The conference programme, including the conference dinner and the Society AGM, will be released in October.
