CAB -- CCSM Advisory Board (CAB)


About CAB
English (USA)

The CCSM Advisory Board (CAB) will provide advice to the CCSM Scientific Steering Committee (SSC), the Director of NCAR, the NSF-ATM Program Director, and the President of UCAR on a wide spectrum of scientific and technical activities within or involving the CCSM. The CAB should address the progress and quality of these activities, their balance, and their interactions with other closely related climate modeling and research activities, both national and international, with the ultimate aim of building a more unified modeling community to enhance progress in climate modeling. The CAB provides advice on future CCSM plans, coordinates CCSM activities with related efforts in other agencies, promotes the CCSM mission and their activities in the national and international community, and provides help in building and expanding the CCSM community.

The CAB consists of approximately 12 to 15 scientists from the university community, NCAR, and other laboratories and institutions, as appropriate. The members represent broad scientific disciplines related to earth system modeling and serve rotating terms of three years. The Chair of the CCSM SSC, the NSF-ATM Program Director, the Director of NCAR, the President of UCAR, and representatives from other agencies as apporpriate, will serve as ex-officio, nonvoting members.

The members of the CAB will be appointed by the President of UCAR, after consultation with the Director of NSF-ATM Program Climate Dynamics Program, the Director of NCAR, and the Chair of the SSC.

The CAB will meet at least once a year or more often as needed.
