The 35th Annual Conference of the South African Society for Atmospheric Sciences (SASAS) will be held at the Riverside Sun Hotel (Vanderbijl Park, Gauteng) on 8-9 October 2019. This year’s conference will be hosted by the Agricultural Research Council - Soil, Climate and Water (ARC-SCW) under the theme ‘CLIMATE MEETS AGRICULTURE – THE INTERPLAY’. This theme is motivated by the necessity to increase awareness on the connection between agriculture and climate. Various activities of crop and livestock emit greenhouse gases, thereby contributing to changes in climate. Consequently, the agriculture sector is affected by climate and producers need climate information for decision-making. This interplay requires collaboration among researchers, government officials and farmers, not only as a vehicle to improve science but also to develop applications for food security, environmental sustainability and economic development, as well as to ensure household and community well-being.

South African Society for Atmospheric Sciences (SASAS) is a society administered by a Council, comprising four officers (President, Vice President, Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer) and six Councillors, all of whom are re-elected every two years. SASAS has been collaborating with other organizations to host an annual conference for the past 34 years. These conferences include keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations as well as exhibitions aimed at promoting and developing atmospheric sciences in the broader southern African context. They are attended by academics and students from various institutions, researchers working within the various sub-disciplines of Atmospheric Science, Climate Change, Agrometeorology, Weather Forecasting, Earth and Oceanic Observations, as well as policy-makers and officials from various industries for which atmospheric sciences are significant.
