NOSCCA North Sea Region Climate Change Assessment

Scientific Steering Committee (SSC)

An international Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) will overview the climate change assessment. The members of the SSC are scientific experts from different climate related disciplines (such as oceanography, atmospheric sciences, climatology, biology, marine and terrestrial ecology, fisheries, marine and atmospheric chemistry, coastal processes/management, economics, sociology). They come mainly but not exclusively from North Sea countries.
