There is a session on remote sensing applications for hydrometeorology, this includes uses of remote sensing data for operational hydrology. There is also a session on aviation hazards such as volcanic ash, fog, dust etc. Other topics include an understanding of the Dvorak method in tropical cyclone analysis and the utility of cloud climatologies in forecasting.
