The SNP group includes almost 80 active members who are either within 5 years from leaving education (e.g. PhD study) or under 35 years of age. The group first met together at the 18th International Congress of Biometeorology in Tokyo (September 2008, led by Kate Bassil), the 19th ICB in Auckland (December 2011, led by Simon Gosling), and for a third time at the 20th ICB in Cleveland (September 2014, led by Jennifer Vanos).

Over the years, SNP members participated in summer-training workshops supported by the Tromp Foundation.  These professional development opportunities for emerging scholars led to publications focusing on interdisciplinary research, education, and technology.  We are a diverse group of researchers and educators working to share our knowledge of Biometeorology from past present, and future, bringing energy and new insights into our work.
