SSC -- CCSM Scientific Steering Committee (SSC)


About SSC
English (USA)

The CCSM SSC will provide scientific ledadership for the CCSM project, including oversight of activities of working groups; coordination of model experiments; decision making on model definition and development; writing proposals for computer time to the Climate Simulation Laboratory and elsewhere, if appropriate; encouragement of external participation in the project; and promotion of CCSM with NSF and other agencies, as appropriate. Also, it will provide information to the CCSM Advisory Board (CAB), as requested, on the functioning and progress of the CCSM.

The SSC consists of nine members, including at least four scientists not employed at NCAR, and the Director of NCAR's Climate and Global Dynamics Division, who will serve as Chair. The members will represent broad scientific disciplines related to earth-system modeling and will serve terms of up to two years in duration. Reappointment is possible. Rotation of SSC membership is expected.

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

The SSC will meet at least two times a year or more often as needed.
