The World Climate Research Program (WCRP) invites Letters of Intent (LOI) to host the International Project Office (IPO) for their Climate and Cryosphere Core Project (CliC) beginning 1 January 2019.

The primary function of the CliC IPO is to provide management support to planning and implementation of WCRP cryospheric priorities. The office ensures appropriate international coordination between different cryospheric activities and scientists as well as collaboration and liaison with other international programmes.

Cryospheric research coordinated by CliC covers the Arctic, Antarctic, high-elevation mountain areas across the globe, as well as broad regions experiencing snow, lake or river ice, and permafrost. CliC supports many cryosphere-related modeling studies within the WCRP Coupled Model Intercomparison Project’s “CMIP6” climate model experiments, which will underpin the upcoming 6th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It works closely with a variety of partners, including the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research, the International Arctic Science Committee and the Global Cryosphere Watch, an initiative of the World Meteorological Organization supporting all key cryospheric observations. CliC also informs a range of stakeholders in relevant socioeconomic domains and provides input to international efforts, such as the Global Framework for Climate Services.
