CIMERS Science Advisory Council

The Science Advisory Council (SAC) provides input on research directions, progress, and policy to the Director. Proposal review is a critical function of the SAC. This council, comprising members of collaborating academic departments and NOAA line offices, meets on an ad hoc basis to review scientific proposals directed to the Institute, at the call of the Chairperson.  Appointment to the council is recommended by the Director of CIMERS and approved by the Executive Board.  The Director also serves as Ex Officio on the CIMERS Science Advisory Board.
