AMS has been an active member with this Tships between the academic, public, and private group since its inception. Members of AMS and UCAR sectors of the atmospheric and related sciences and management also team up to meet with key congres- services community. For example, the National Re- sional members and staff regarding a number of is- search Council recently completed a study on the sues, including funding levels for weather and climate three-way partnership, examining many successes as research. well as some areas of tension (NRC 2003: Towards The AMS and UCAR collaborate on a number of Effective Partnerships—Advancing Weather and Cli- advocacy publications, including the following recent mate Services).
