SOOS is a CliC endorsed project

Nominations are open for new members to join the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS) Scientific Steering Committee (SSC). (see: for information on current SSC members).

CliC would like to help ensure broad national coverage on the SSC. Nominations of experts from all disciplines will be considered, however there is particular interest in nominations from experts in:
• Ocean/ice-sheet dynamics
• Technologists (e.g., hardware, cyber infrastructure)
• Data assimilation

Ideally, candidates would be present at the upcoming SSC meeting in Norway in June 2014. Nominees should be highly regarded for their scientific excellence, have close connections to the community that they represent, and should be willing to actively participate in the implementation of SOOS.

Nominations should include a cover letter stating the nominee’s motivation to be involved, CV highlighting relevant experience (6 pages maximum), and letter of support from the nominator. Please send nominations (including self-nominations) to Louise Newman <> by the 17 February 2014. Read more at
