SPARC SSG Nominations now open


15 September 2018: Deadline for Nominations!


The call for nominations to SPARC’s Scientific Steering Group (SSG) is now open. The SSG currently comprises 12 researchers from around the world with a wide range of expertise in atmospheric dynamics and chemistry. They guide SPARC’s priorities and activities, working together with the SSG co-chairs and the SPARC project office.

SSG members should thus have a good overview of the implementation plans, the regional and international research agendas, and how SPARC’s priorities align with those of the new WCRP strategy.

The nominations can be submitted online (including the upload of a publications list). It is possible to nominate a candidate or nominate yourself. The SSG takes a strategic view of SPARC’s role and are looking for individuals with a broad view of atmospheric science and climate change as well as expertise in their own field. Scientific expertise, career stage as well as gender and geographical balance are taken into account.

The initial term of service is for four years (January 2020 – December 2023), with a possible extension of two years.
