ERT Announces Educational Sponsorship Activities for AMS

ERT is pleased to announce that we’re a corporate sponsor for the upcoming American Meteorological Society (AMS) Short Course on Experiencing Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) Capabilities. This event will be held on January 21, 2017 in Seattle, Washington, just prior to the official start of the 97th AMS Annual Meeting.
