Call for nominations for SOOS Steering Committee

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


We are keen to ensure broad national coverage on the SSC.


Nominations of experts from all disciplines will be considered, but we are particularly interested 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 SOOS 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.
