    The 10th International Conference on Urban Climate and 14th Symposium on the Urban Environment, co-hosted by AMS at City College of New York, kicked off Monday with a number of comments not only about recent extreme weather events but also the appropriateness of meeting in the Big Apple.

  • Oh Say Can You Breathe? The Impact of Fireworks on Air Quality in the United States
    by Perry Samson, Climate and Space Science and Engineering, University of Michigan On July 4th last year, in an attempt to entertain my two grandchildren, I set off what I felt was a modest display of fireworks in our front yard.

  • Lubchenco: Let’s “Embed” Science in Society
    In a “post-truth” world of contemporary politics and culture, “it’s easy to assume that science is really in trouble and everything is bad,” said Jane Lubchenco in her James R. Mahoney Memorial Lecture in Washington, D.C., last month. In fact, science does have its image problems: most people don’t interact with science and don’t know scientists. A recent study […]

  • Small-scale Vortices Enhanced Winds and Damage in Hurricane Harvey
    Severe but highly variable wind damage to homes & infrastructure is a hallmark of intense tropical cyclones.
