The CESM Advisory Board (CAB) will serve as an advisory committee reporting to the CESM Scientific Steering Committee, NSF Program Director, NCAR Director, and UCAR President. Membership in the CAB will come from university faculty and staff, staff members of national laboratories, and scientists from foreign universities, laboratories, and centers.
The Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) will provide scientific leadership for the CESM project, including oversight of activities of working groups, coordination of model experiments, decision making on model definition and development.
The detailed work on various aspects of CESM will be done in working groups. These working groups will consist of scientists who come together to work on topics on which they share common interest.
