Revisit last year's speakers and presentations: 2014 Weather and Climate Summit
The Weather and Climate Summit was established in 1985 to bring together television weathercasters
and meteorologists from top U.S. and Canadian markets with leading scientists and researchers.
This summit allows for dynamic and frequent interchange between the media and scientists in order
to foster improved communication and collaboration between these diverse professions. The Weather and
Climate Summit enables television meteorologists to learn more about upcoming technologies and research
findings that will lead to improved public awareness. The Weather and Climate Summit also helps the attendees
and scientists understand how each one operates, produces information, conducts research and communicates. The
ultimate outcome of this summit is the establishment of improved media-scientist relationships that fosters
continued dialogue for improved scientific communication to the public.
Goal of Summit Participants
For years, Summit participants have raved about the quality of the speakers and the benefits that come out of
a week-long intimate gathering of professionals.
- To learn about advanced technologies that can help improve weather forecasting and warning dissemination;
- To understand the latest on the state of the climate and climate science research;
- To better understand how extreme weather and climate change may impact their viewers;
- Foster improved relationships with the speakers, scientists and subject matter experts.
