WAS*IS is a grassroots movement to fully integrate social science into meteorological research and practice. WAS*IS is doing this by:

(1) building an interdisciplinary community of practitioners, researchers, and stakeholders who are dedicated to the integration of meteorology and social science; and

(2) providing this community with opportunities to learn about ideas, methods, and examples related to integrated weather-society work. See our article in the November 2007 issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society for more information about WAS*IS (http://ams.allenpress.com/archive/1520-0477/88/11/pdf/i1520-0477-88-11-1729.pdf).
