Home >> Scientific Advisor Committee
The CEGMR Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) has a specific goal to examine CEGMR's research activities, provide guidance and recommendations for future work, and to render its professional judgment about the quality and importance of CEGMR research contributions to the Kingdom. The SAC meets annually to review all CEGMR scientific activity for the preceding period. The CEGMR Executive Director provides an Annual Report to the members of the SAC prior to the meeting, to document milestones and major achievements, positive actions taken in response to earlier SAC recommendations, personnel changes, major procurements, and propose any change in the scope of CEGMR scientific projects. The SAC reports its evaluations of the current state of CEGMR research, and gives its recommendations for the future to the President of KAU, who transmits the report to representatives of the Ministry of Higher Education and, to the funding agencies. The SAC includes internationally recognized climate scientists from universities, research laboratories, and non-profit research institutes from all over the world. It has already visited many times.
