Please join the American Association of State Climatologists (AASC) and the National Coordinated Soil Moisture Monitoring Network (NCSMMN) for a joint networking event in Davenport, Iowa in late July: The Soil Moisture Network Operators Workshop and the AASC Mesonet Community Meeting.

AASC Mesonet Community Meeting: July 26–28, 2023

The Mesonet Community Meeting will be an in-person gathering July 26–28, 2023, open to all members of the mesonet community. There is an interactive agenda planned with a mixture of business and networking. Classic "business" topics will include:

  • AASC Mesonet Recognition Program
  • Updates to the AASC Mesonet Best Practices document
  • Funding ideas and opportunities
  • Development of a professional mentoring / training program
  • AASC Mesonet website, promotion, and marketing
  • Updates from our key partners

This meeting is intended to foster discussion on issues that affect the way mesonets operate rather than a program of individual presentations. Interaction is a key part of this goal, hence the in-person structure. The AASC Mesonet Committee hopes to integrate opportunities for attendees to interact to continue to foster the community, share lessons learned, and build a connection of resources for everyone’s success.
