HG Nelson confirmed as Conference Dinner Speaker!
The AMOS 2012 Conference Dinner will be taking place at 7pm on Wednesday, 1 February 2012 at historic Luna Park on Sydney Harbour's foreshore.
The evening will commence with pre-dinner drinks, which will be served next to the Ferris Wheel (weather permitting). Dinner tickets include admission to the Wheel, which will be available for our exclusive use.

The AMOS 2012 conference (being held at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, 31 Jan – 3 Feb) is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet. Almost 350 abstracts have been submitted across 3 general and 15 special sessions. The conference theme, Connections in the Climate System, is represented in the wide array of special sessions covering topics including: Hydroclimate of the Murray-Darling Basin; Natural Hazards, Fire weather and Tsunamis; covering regions from the Tropical Pacific to the Southern Ocean; looking into the past in Climate of the last 2000 years; and into the future with a session on Renewable Energy, amongst many others.
The plenary speakers are still being finalised but currently cover ocean observations (Dr Susan Wijffels, CSIRO), palaeoclimate (Prof. Tim Bralower, Penn State, USA), climate change detection and attribution (Dr. Nathan Gillet, CCCMA, Canada), remote sensing of the global hydrological cycle (Prof. Chris Kummerow, Colorado State, USA), atmospheric dynamics (Prof. Paul O'Gorman, MIT, USA), and the recently awarded Uwe Radok winner for best PhD Thesis in 2010 – Jan Zika who will present a new perspective on ocean circulation.
The conference promises to be rewarding both in terms of the scientific content and the social networking opportunities including the welcome reception on the first evening, a students BBQ by the beach, the conference dinner at the wonderfully located Luna Park, and the poster viewing session each day.
Early bird registration closes 9 December 2011, so get in quick. I look forward to seeing you at the conference.
AMOS 2012 conference convener.
The guiding theme for AMOS 2012 is Connections in the Climate System. The conference will focus on connections between physical components of the system, time scales, spatial scales as well as biophysical and socio-economic systems.
- Connections between physical components of the system (Atmosphere - Ocean - Land - Cryosphere)
- Connections between time scales (weather to climate to paleoclimate)
- Spatial connections (e.g. modes of variability, teleconnections)
- Connections between the biophysical and socio-economic systems (e.g. impacts of extreme events and/or climate change)
