Discuss draft Terms of Reference for Scientific Advisory Committee

The proposed Terms of Reference elaborated by the NDC subgroup is presented by Mike Bell.
Discussion and comments:

  • In the proposed document, the biogeochemsitry is suggested to possibly be considered as out of scope of SAC. Olivier Aumont states the importance and specificity of ocean modeling using this component, the interactions of biogeochemistry with other components of the system for developments so as the fact that the transport part (TOP) is indeed shared between differents source and sinks models (PISCES, MEDUSA…).
    Consensus is agreed to at least have experts on biogeochemical modeling in the SAC. The discussion should be forwarded to Steering Committee for final decision.
  • Frequency of SAC meetings and of renewal of members
