Meteorological Monographs

About the Journal

AMS Meteorological Monographs are thematic collections of review articles or other papers summarizing state-of-the-art knowledge in meteorology and closely related fields. Such collections should provide a thorough background on a general topic area and have comprehensive reference lists. Articles in Meteorological Monographs are peer-reviewed and the normal length limitations of AMS articles would not apply. Tribute volumes and collections of review papers from special topical meetings are examples of appropriate material for monographs. Learn More
