The Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS) Southern Ocean Air-Sea Fluxes (SOFLUX) Working Group has been in existence for 5 years, it’s time to set up a system for staggered rotation of leadership. SOOS terms of office are typically 4 years. Please contact Louise Newman (SOOS), Sarah Gille, or Seb Swart by 15 May 2021 if you’d like to nominate someone or self-nominate to serve as SOFLUX co-chair or to serve on our steering committee:
- Current co-chairs are Seb Swart and Sarah Gille. Seb Swart is now co-chairing OASIS and proposes to rotate out of the SOFLUX co-chair position this year. (Sarah Gille will rotate out in the next cycle.)
- Early career co-chair: Marcel du Plessis is our APECS appointee. We are working with APECS to identify a second APECS appointee and to set up terms of reference. Contact us or APECS if you are interested or want to suggest potential nominees.
- In the past, the steering committee has met infrequently, but moving forward we anticipate quarterly telecons to keep our webinar series and other activities on track. Our current leadership is listed here: https://www.soos.aq/activities/cwg/soflux
