Weatherfest 2011

The AMS (American Meteorological Society) has an annual meeting once a year, much like the American Geophysical Union (which I attended at the end of 2009 and years prior).  We're lucky enough that they are having it in Seattle this year because, they also have something called "Weatherfest".

Weatherfest is a science and engineering festival geared towards the K-12 set. Because it is part of the AMS conference, there are tons of of cool exhibits and neat meteorology industry stuff. Much like geophysics - technically, meteorology is a branch of geophysics - there is so much technology. And much like all things earth science, it impacts us every single day. Our local weather anchors, from all of the channels, were there. There was also a Weather Channel anchor. I counted three "green screens" while we were there.

Here are some pictures from the event.
