A big Thank You to all for attending this first hybrid EMS Annual Meeting; we were enthralled to see so many from our communities back and welcome many early career scientists attending for the first time.
The EMS2022 was attended by 815 participants from 48 countries: 671 onsite in Bonn and 144 online from across the globe.
Opening and Panel discussion
“Connecting communities to deliver seamless weather and climates science and services” – The additional focus of this year’s EMS Annual Meeting addressed the needs, challenges and benefits from seamless inter- and transdisciplinary interactions within and between communities’ respective objectives, methodologies and partnerships. As a kick-off of the week’s theme, a prominent opening discussion took place at the Opening event: the importance of the “user perspective” in applying scientific knowledge and expertise to concrete problems was stressed in the discussion; the objective to lead to general and concrete recommendations towards communities associated with meteorology and climatology for improving its growing role within and in engaging with society was vibrant troughout.
Icebreaker and Networking lunch for early career scientists
Many of those attending onsite did enjoy the first opportunity to meet in person again after three years with essentially all get-togethers being held in the virtual world. Thus social and networking events such as the icebreaker on Monday morning, generously sponsored by DWD, and the ECS lunch, organised and funded by the University Partnership for Atmospheric Sciences (UPAS), were the events most highlighted in the feedback of participants, the opportunity to chat, discuss, brain storm and interact was cited as a highly relevant part of the meeting.
Poster Award: Impact-based warning information for ice-throw risk: A Norwegian survey
The work by Jelmer Jeuring and Anders Sivle from the Norwegian Meteorological Institute on Impact-based warning information for ice-throw risk: A Norwegian survey presents outcomes from a survey into perceptions of the general public in Norway about ice-throw risk, perceived value of different communication tools and formats of ice-throw risk information for Norwegian wind farms: a systematic set of recommendations regarding communication and formatting of ice throw risk warning information.
