Professor Hutyra Nominated to NACP Scientific Steering Committee

August 28th, 2013 in 2013, August-13, Faculty, Joining Team/Committee, Lucy Hutyra

he North American Carbon Program (NACP) is a multidisciplinary research program to obtain scientific understanding of North America’s carbon sources and sinks and of changes in carbon stocks needed to meet societal concerns and to provide tools for decision makers. Successful execution of the NACP will require an unprecedented level of coordination among observational, experimental, and modeling efforts regarding terrestrial, oceanic, atmospheric, and human components. The NACP is supported by a number of different federal agencies through a variety of intramural and extramural funding mechanisms and award instruments. NACP will rely upon a rich and diverse array of existing observational networks, monitoring sites, and experimental field studies in North America and its adjacent oceans. Integrating these different program activities and maximizing synergy amongst them, will require expert guidance beyond the norm for large field programs in Earth system science and global climate change.

Professor Bruce Anderson appointed to serve on Steering Committee for US Climate Research

January 29th, 2013 in 2013, Bruce Anderson, Faculty, January-13, Joining Team/Committee

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.
