Welcome to the first ever Royal Meteorological Society podcast! In this episode, we will be explaining who we are and our role as one of the world's largest meteorological societies. We will also, following on from our "Message Impossible - Communicating Weather Information in the Digital Age" National meeting, be talking to Dr Rebecca Morss of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (US) and Andrew Charlton-Perez of Reading University about the challenges the scientific community faces when delivering forecasts.
Our membership is open to everyone and anyone with an interest in weather and climate, whether that be as a science, profession or interest. We have over 3,300 members from more than 50 countries that includes academics, scientists and professional meteorologists as well as students and keen weather enthusiasts.
The Society's programmes are broad and diverse, with many activities accessible not only to members, but also to the general public and the wider meteorological and climate community. For more information on our charitable activities and events visit our website at www.rmets.org.
