Remote Sensing Systems scientists will be attending and presenting their latest research at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in San Francisco, CA next week (Dec 15th-19th) and also at the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting in Phoenix, AZ (January 4th-7th, 2015). Please stop by to say hello or ask questions.

In addition to attending the AMS meeting, Frank Wentz will be receiving the Verner E Suomi Award.  We congratulate him on this great honor!
