CLIVAR SSG Membership Rotation in 2024

At the start of 2024, the CLIVAR Scientific Steering Group (SSG) bid farewell to member Dr Wenju Cai, and welcome a new member Dr Shoshiro Minobe.

Dr Wenju Cai served as a member of the SSG in 2018 and 2023, and as Co-Chair from 2019 to 2022.  Prior to joining the SSG, Dr Cai served as member and Co-Chair of the CLIVAR Pacific Region Panel.  

Shoshiro's research interests are the interannual to decadal variability of the ocean and atmosphere from regional to global scales, and changes over longer timescales. His research focuses on the physical aspects of the atmosphere and ocean, but he is also interested in interdisciplinary studies.
