A foundational principle of COMET is that all of its activities are strengthened by collaboration with others. COMET’s primary community includes environmental forecasters and scientists in all settings, including universities, government agencies, state and local governments, and the private sector, both in the United States and internationally. We are grateful to all those who have participated in COMET activities for their involvement and support.
