Conference Announcement

Meteorology at the Millennium

10-14 July 2000
Cambridge, England, UK

This major international conference will be held at St. John's College, Cambridge University to celebrate both

the new century and the 150th birthday of the Royal Meteorological Society. A particular aim will be to involve the new generation of younger scientists in the program.
Meteorology is now at the forefront of science. It has provided the stimulus for new developments in several areas. For example, the study of chaotic systems began with the problems of weather prediction. At the same time, advancing knowledge in other sciences has led to new and exciting changes in the atmospheric sciences. One example is the newly appreciated two-way interaction between living things and their environment, including climate.

No less important has been the advance of technology, which has given new tools and methods of analysis to the atmospheric sciences, and opened up new questions for scientific study. Developments in computing, space technology and radar have all played central roles in developing, and have themselves been advanced by, the modern science of meteorology. Included in the program will be invited talks on atmospheric chemistry, biogeochemical linkages between atmosphere and ocean, and modeling biological interactions.

The conference will explore these interactions, reflecting on the way in which modern meteorology is contributing to developments in other sciences and on the way in which atmospheric scientists are learning from their colleagues in other disciplines. Presentations will also reflect on the wider implications of these advances for society.
