UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — David Stensrudprofessor of meteorology at Penn State, has been voted president-elect of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). He will be inducted to the post on Sunday, Jan. 28, during the 104th AMS Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.

Stensrud will serve a one-year term as president-elect and in 2025, he will assume the presidency of the society, which was founded in 1919 and has a membership of nearly 12,000 weather, water and climate professionals. AMS is the nation’s premier scientific and professional organization promoting and disseminating information about the atmospheric, oceanic and hydrologic sciences.

"I am very proud of our community for the amazing progress we have made in understanding and predicting the earth system, positively impacting the lives of people across the world,” said Stensrud. “And society’s need for weather, water and climate information will only continue to grow as we prepare for and respond to hazardous events and anthropogenic climate change. AMS plays a key role in these efforts. I hope to strengthen AMS's continuing work to build a more diverse, inclusive and equitable culture that supports its members as we interact with the wider world. We are stronger and more resilient in community.”
