INSAM, a market place on the web for agrometeorologists (earlier version also available in Spanish and Farsi)

Why become a member and what do we expect from members of INSAM? (available in English and Spanish)


Founding members of INSAM

In our initiating letter on INSAM, widely disseminated (most recently also in Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, Vol. 123 (1/2), 2004, pp. 121 - 123), we offered founding memberships to colleagues that wanted to support us with a one time donation of at least 70 Euro (or the equivalent in dollars) and corporate membership to organizations supplying a one time donation of 500 Euro (or the equivalent in dollars). For the above purposes we are asking to forward this letter to as many colleagues in agrometeorology that you think may be interested to become a "founding member" by sending 70 Euro (or 500 Euro for corporate founding members) to the following account:
