Welcome from the Chair

The theme for this year’s World Meteorological Day is ‘The future of weather, climate and water across generations’. As a result of heat-trapping greenhouse gases, our weather is more extreme, ocean is warmer and more acidic, sea levels have risen and glaciers and ice are melting. The rate of change is accelerating. We need urgent action now to slash emissions and to ensure that future generations can both survive and thrive on our planet.

This webinar aims to encourage connection and collaboration among meteorological researchers and the international open access community to help improved the accuracy of weather forecasts and life-saving early warnings.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you at the World Meteorological Day Webinar 2023. Please find below an up-to-date outline of presenters.
