He is ISMC member since the start in Austin 2016 and served as ISMC Executive Board member and Co-Chair of the Data & Observation model linking science panel (DO-LINK).

Teamrat expressed his primary missions being the

  • Fostering of the bottom-up structure of ISMC
  • Attract early-career scientists to become active participants
  • Broaden the disciplines represented
  • Systematically characterize the properties and processes of every sq-km of soil surface
