AMOS is an independent Australian society that supports and fosters interest in meteorology, oceanography and other related sciences, providing a forum for people with a common interest, and by publishing relevant material. The Society helps all those with an interest in the environment including research workers and professionals, those whose work is affected by, and affects, the atmosphere and oceans, and those who simply want to keep up with new findings.



Think you could do a better job forecasting the weather than your classmates, work colleagues, or even the Bureau of Meteorology? Here's your chance to prove it. The AMOS Weather Tipping competition is just like footy tipping, only instead of tipping the AFL or NRL winners each weekend, punters tip the weather at a selected station in the Australian region (which includes New Zealand and Antarctica).
