Professor Bruce Anderson appointed to serve on the Scientific Steering Committee for the US Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) Program.

In addition, Prof. Anderson has been appointed as co-chair of the U.S. CLIVAR Predictability, Prediction and Applications Interface Panel. US CLIVAR is responsible for facilitating the development of important climate research efforts in the US.  Over the next two years, the Program is embarking on an effort to develop a new US CLIVAR Science Plan to set goals and objectives guiding the U.S. climate research directions for the coming 15 years.  In addition, it fosters improved practices in the dissemination and use of climate information and forecasts within the US and international communities.  CLIVAR itself is an international, interdisciplinary research effort within the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) designed to facilitate analysis and prediction of Earth system variability and change for use in an increasing range of practical applications of direct relevance, benefit and value to society.
