Individuals Who Provided Input to the Committee

Over the past two years, the committee has met six times to gather information and conduct deliberations. At several of these meetings, members of the atmospheric sciences community were invited to share their perspectives on study questions, both in sessions devoted to specific issues and in an “open mike” session when any comments were welcome. In addition, the committee made available a Web site through which members of the community could contribute comments (http://dels.nas.edu/basc/strat.shtml), met with the heads and chairs of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) universities, and held town hall sessions at the December 2004 fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and at the January 2005 annual meeting of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). The committee’s interim report was made available online and was mailed to the heads and chairs of the UCAR universities with instructions on how to submit comments and the announcements of upcoming town halls. Two town halls were held at the AGU meeting, fall 2005, and the AMS meeting, winter 2006, to solicit input from the community in response to its charge and its interim report. The committee has also received input through the above-mentioned Web site in response to the interim report. This input has been quite helpful in shaping the committee’s thinking. We acknowledge in particular the following individuals who made substantive comments in one or more of these venues:

M. Joan Alexander, NorthWest Research Associates

Caspar Amman, National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)

Richard Anthes, UCAR
