The 42nd Session of the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee (JSC-42)

Today will be the last day of the the 42nd Session of the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee (JSC-42). It has so far been a week with interesting discussions on further scientific, coordinative and communicative development.

The aim has been to, among others, approve and  plan for the new Lighthouse Activities,  the new ‘CORE Projects’ “Earth System Modelling and Observations” and “Regional Climate Information for Society (RIfS)” and of course discuss progress and plans for the already established Core Projects, Grand Challenges and other major activities.

Daniela Jacob, co-chair of CORDEX Science Advisory Team (SAT), on behalf of the CORDEX community held a presentation on CORDEX latest achievements, upcoming activities and scientific priorities as well as CORDEX contributions to RIfS.  Please see the CORDEX report and presentation at JSC-42 for more details.
