This article, published in a special issue of the International Journal of Biometeorology commemorating the Society’s 60th anniversary, was the result of a Summer 2016 SNP Workshop entitled “Enhancing the Teaching and Learning of Biometeorology in Higher Education.” In it, 13 SNP members discuss what steps should be taken in order to educate the biometeorologists of the future. A strict biometeorology focus in curriculum is still not prevalent in higher education and students must take from a mixture of learning experiences to formulate the knowledge needed to work on biometeorological problems. Future frameworks of knowledge dissemination are discussed through the lens of solving some of the problems outlined in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
A review, published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, of the Summer 2016 workshop where SNP members from around the world gather at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA, USA to discuss future avenues for biometeorology training and education.
Compiled notes and results from our Summer 2016 workshop.
Published in the International Journal of Biometeorology in 2014, Hondula et al. review the literature using the Spatial Synoptic Classification system, created in Dr. Scott Sheridan of Kent State University, in biometeorological applications and discuss how it may be used to further the science and goals of the Society in the future.
