The Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society's 51st Congress (CMOS Congress) will be held from June 4th to 8th, 2017 at the Downtown Hilton Toronto, Ontario. The theme of the congress is "Future Earth: Weather, Oceans, Climate". The congress will bring together over 600 scientists and other professionals from across Canada and other countries, with a focus on topics in atmospheric, ocean and earth sciences. Interviews, by Dr. Sarah Knight of the Congress Communications Team, with some of CMOS' top scientists, will be conducted and included here in the run-up to the Congress in June. With over 40 scientific sessions covering a range of highly relevant topics - many of which are essential research areas for the health of the planet and its inhabitants - the CMOS Congress is a crucial gathering for some of Canada's top environmental scientists.
