Purpose & objectives:

The Czech Meteorological Society is a scientific society of professionals working in meteorology and related disciplines (meteorologists, researchers, academicians). The membership is on voluntary basis, there is no connection to trade unions, but it is a member of the Council of Scientific Societies of Academy of Science of the Czech Republic.

We are organized in four local sections (Prague, Brno, Hradec Kralove, Ostrava) associated to the structure of branches of CHMI. The main activities are developed around organizing series of local seminars in the sections, covering meteorological and related topics, as well as regular annual meetings on selected themes (recently Education in Atmospheric Sciences and Information on Meteorology for the Public).

Goals:

  • to contribute to the development of meteorology
  • to contribute to the application of new knowledge
  • to promote atmospheric science in the public

Perspectives, future strategy:

  • to become open for a broader spectrum of that public that is interested or active in connection to meteorology,
  • additional emphasis on education and outreach in our topics, especially towardsscience based concepts, climate change issues and extreme events
