The programmes of the Society are broad and diverse. The Society publishes six international science journals and an in-house journal, along with four books. Our programme of conferences and meetings bring together scientists from across the international community, and in addition we have a number of very active local centres and special interest groups. We have an active education programme for teachers and children at both primary and secondary schools and promote continuing professional development from those in their first job to the most senior professionals. The Society also provides support to the media and is actively involved in the Government policy development on areas around weather and climate change.
