Scientific Steering Committee

The SOLAS Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) represents a broad spectrum of disciplines and nationalities, and includes both mid-career and senior scientists. The continuing success of SOLAS relies on the input of its engaged members.
The SSC members are responsible for providing scientific guidance to, and overseeing the development, planning and implementation of the SOLAS project. They are tasked to communicate on ongoing SOLAS activities and to encourage the publication and dissemination of SOLAS science results. They are also expected to communicate with the SOLAS International Office regularly on various issues.

The SSC members are appointed by the four SOLAS parent programmes, WCRP, SCOR, iCACGP and Future Earth for a first term of 3 years, renewable once. The term of reference of an SSC member can be found under this link.

The SSC members meet physically in average and at least once per year for a 3-day SSC meeting.
