a core project of

Activity Leaders

CliC targeted activities, working groups, and forums are initiated and conducted by experts in the field with assistance from the CliC Co-chairs and IPO. Each project has one or several (two or three usually) leads to carry out the activities. The CliC IPO works together with the leads to plan the activity on the long term as well as supports them on a more daily basis when comes the time of the organization of workshops. We thank them for their tireless efforts in helping to increase our understanding of the climate and cryosphere connections.
