Meteorology section considers new name


  • Jay S. Winston


The AGU Meteorology Section business meeting was held at the Jack Tar Hotel, December 9, during the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco. The principal item discussed at the half-hour meeting was the proposal made by several members that consideration be given to renaming the section ‘Atmospheric Science.’ The members present felt the proposed name would better serve the strong physical, chemical, and electrical constituencies now in the Meteorology Section. There was also some indication that those now in the SPR: Aeronomy Section would be interested in joining a revamped Atmospheric Science Section.
