The WCRP Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Core project is launching an open call for nominations to its Scientific Steering Group (SSG).
CliC is a global community of researchers with expertise and knowledge of the cryosphere and its interactions with the climate system. CliC expertise spans simulation modelling, field observations, process studies and cross-cutting issues with other disciplines and stakeholders. CliC identifies key research questions, priorities, gaps and challenges pertaining to the cryosphere and its interaction with the global climate system, and coordinates international activities to promote activities that address these matters. The SSG is the governing body of CliC and has the overall responsibility for planning and implementing of the project´s Strategy Plan 2022-2031. CliC vision for the next decade is to achieve a system understanding of the global and regional cryosphere that includes the physical climate, ecosystems and inhabitants of cryosphere regions, as well as the cryosphere connections and feedbacks to climate and society.
We seek nominations (including self-nominations) from scientists active in cryosphere-related research, both in the natural and social sciences, including those studying the interaction of ecosystems, fisheries and communities with the one or more cryosphere components.
