The American Meteorological Society held its 10th Conference on Satellite Meteorology and Oceanography in conjunction with the 80th Annual Meeting in Long Beach, California. For the second consecutive conference, a format that consisted primarily of posters, complemented by invited theme-oriented oral presentations, and discussion panels, was utilized. Joint sessions were held with the Second Conference on Artificial Intelligence, the 11th Conference on Middle Atmosphere, and the 11th Symposium on Global Change Studies. In total, there were 23 oral presentations, 170 poster presentations, and 4 panel discussions. Over 450 people representing a wide spectrum of the society attended one or more of the sessions in the five-day meeting.
