Call for SPARC SSG nominations now open

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 SPARC Implementation plan and planning documents, the regional and international research agendas, and how SPARC’s priorities align with those of the new WCRP strategy.

The deadline for nominations is 15 September 2018.

Nominations can be submitted through the online form at
(including the upload of a publications list).

Please note that you can either nominate a candidate or nominate yourself.

The SSG takes a strategic view of SPARC’s role, so we 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.

If you are interested in getting involved in SPARC in other ways, including ideas for new foci, please visit the SPARC webpage for more information: or contact the SPARC Office.
