Call for US CLIVAR Panel Members
NOMINATIONS DUE December 20, 2019
The US CLIVAR Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) seeks qualified individuals to serve on its three subsidiary Panels:
These Panels formulate science goals and implementation strategies, catalyze and coordinate activities, and work with agencies and international partners to advance the progress of the climate research community. It is an exciting time to join the US CLIVAR Panels, as they work on planning activities to address the goals and research challenges articulated in the US CLIVAR Science Plan and to prepare for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. US CLIVAR aims to foster understanding and prediction of climate variability and change on intraseasonal-to-centennial timescales through observations and modeling with emphasis on the role of the ocean and its interaction with other elements of the Earth system, and to serve the climate community and society through the coordination and facilitation of research on outstanding climate questions. Key research challenges include decadal variability and predictability, climate and extreme events, polar climate changes, and climate and marine carbon/biogeochemistry.

The AGU Congressional Science Fellowship program places highly qualified and accomplished scientists, engineers, and other professionals in the office of an individual member of Congress or on a committee for a one-year assignment.
The program allows our federal government to more effectively use scientific knowledge and provides scientists with the opportunity to make significant contributions to public policy during their time on Capitol Hill.
For four decades, AGU Congressional Science Fellows (CSFs) have been directly involved in water policy, climate research, energy conservation, and a range of other science-based issues. AGU CSFs have gone on to pursue a wide range of careers from positions in government, both in Congress and at federal agencies, to research positions at academic institutions
