"Understanding and Building Resilience to Extreme Events by Being Interdisciplinary, International, and Inclusive (III)."

Note from ACLENet's Director
Mary Ann Cooper

The American Meteorological Society has given continuing support to those working to decrease deaths and injuries from lightning in the USA.  Going further now, AMS has accepted ACLENet's proposal for a special session at their next meeting:

Global Lightning Casualties.

We encourage all who are working towards decreasing lightning's human toll around the world to submit abstracts (deadline 1 Aug) about injuries in their countries and what they are doing to prevent them.  We are happy to announce that we already have promises of abstracts from colleagues in several countries.
This special session will be part of the
Ninth Conference on Meteorological Application of Lightning Data. 
AMS Annual Meeting is the best networking event for meteorologists in the world.
