Members shall conduct themselves in a manner which reflects dignity and honour on the profession of atmospheric scientists.
Members shall not knowingly take credit for work done by others; in publications and meetings credit shall be given where it is due.
In scientific practice members shall base their work on scientific principles applied in a scientific manner.
Members shall refrain from making exaggerated and unwarranted claims and statements.
Members who contribute new knowledge to the profession are expected to make known to the scientific world results of their significant work.
