CMOS Bulletin SCMO
Vol.47 No.4, August 2019
In this issue (Vol.47 No.4) of the CMOS Bulletin, we share our UPDATED POSITION ON CLIMATE CHANGE, in support of the recently published Canada’s Changing Climate Report (CCCR). This issue also includes some wonderful articles on citizen science projects, including a look at McGill’s DRAW project by Victoria Slonosky. The DRAW project seeks to involve the public in the task of digitizing important historical weather data. Bulletin editor Sarah Knight interviews citizen scientist, budding meteorologist and CMOS’ youngest member Haowen Qin. Two excellent book reviews, including one on the recent book by the aforementioned Victoria Slonosky, “Climate in the Age of Empire: Weather Observers in Colonial Canada” by Richard Leduc, are included. Society president Kimberly Strong shares her insights on the important work that CMOS does to support our members, and how she hopes to support growth in the society in the coming year. We also include several items of interest to members, including some photos from the recent CMOS congress at the IUGG General Assembly in Montreal, books available for review, and more.
