CMOS Bulletin Vol.48 No.3, August 2020
In this issue (Vol.48 N.3) of the CMOS Bulletin, CMOS Past President Kimberly Strong hands over the presidency to Marek Stastna, while reflecting on CMOS’s accomplishments of the past year. CMOS President Marek greets the incoming volunteers into the fold and encourages CMOS members to reach out to him, as well as consider submitting articles to the Bulletin. This issue features a look at Ontario’s all time record low temperature, and discusses instances of data error with weather records. We also feature this year’s Arctic Climate Forum Consensus Statement and the Arctic Summer Seasonal Climate Outlook for both temperature and precipitation, as well as sea ice. Richard Leduc and Jean-François Brière compare micrometeorological variables and atmospheric dispersion modelling in two climate regions of Quebec, while Environment and Climate Change Canada’s use of radar data for snowfall estimates is explored. We also include several items of interest to members, including our statement on racism, the CMOS awards winners, books available for review, and more.
