Since its advent, the ICSHMO has provided a unique contribution to ocean and atmosphere sciences that are specific to the Southern Hemisphere. The objective of the 2015 conference is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for presentations of our current knowledge, as well as encouraging new research and applications within the variety of disciplines related to weather and climate of the ocean and atmosphere. The overarching theme of this conference will be the Challenges of the Next Decade. Participation of early career scholars and postgraduate researchers is positively encouraged.
The conference is organized by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the Department of Geophysics, Universidad de Chile. The Department of Geophysics (DGF) is within the Facultad de Ciencias Físicas y Matemáticas located near downtown in Santiago.
