Executive Board

ISMC structure

ISMC’s decisional structure is governed by an Executive Board and an Advisory Board, and activities are structured under the three Science Panels.The scientific advancement and bulk of the activities rest with the science panels. Specific activities include focusing on dataacquisition (protocols, techniques), availability and model linkages (DO-Link); model intercomparison and improvement, with specific attention to integrated models and global Earth system models (Soil-MIP); and, cross-cutting information and exchange between disciplines, and outreach to other communities (like climate and crop production modelers), stakeholders, and the broader public (CROSS-Connect).

The Executive Board is composed of elected ISMC members and the Consortium’s chairs. Out of the executive board members the Science Panel chairs are elected.
