The 11th meeting of the International Conference on Southern Hemisphere Meteorology and Oceanography will be held in Santiago, Chile, from Monday 5 to Friday 9 of October 2015. The conference is organized by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the Department of Geophysics, Universidad de Chile. The Department of Geophysics (DGF) is within the Facultad de Ciencias Físicas y Matemáticas (FCFM) located near downtown in Santiago. We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of the FONDAP Center of Climate and Resilience Research (CR2), the ICM Nucleus on SH Paleoclimate and MeteoData.
Since its advent, the ICSHMO has provided a unique contribution to ocean and atmosphere sciences that are specific to the Southern Hemisphere. The objective of the 2015 conference is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for presentations of our current knowledge, as well as encouraging new research and applications within the variety of disciplines related to weather and climate of the ocean and atmosphere. The overarching theme of this conference will be the Challenges of the Next Decade. Participation of early career scholars and postgraduate researchers is positively encouraged.
We look forward seeing you in Santiago, Chile, in this new gathering of the ICSHMO, so place these dates on your calendar and make arrangements to attend. We kindly ask you to circulate the information among those interested in Southern Hemisphere Meteorology and Oceanography.
