The External Science Advisory Group

The Bolin Centre external science advisory group (ESAG) is comprised of leading national and international scientists within climate research. The members help the Bolin Centre to see its strengths, weaknesses and possibilities for development as well as increase the Bolin Centre’s contacts to international networks and research groups within the climate research area.
The group has several new members and we welcome them to the Bolin Centre with interesting talks and discussions in a science forum preceding the Bolin Days 19–20 November.
