Coordination and Implementation Group
TEAMx activities are supervised by a Coordination and Implementation Group (CIG) established in September 2017.
Programme Coordination Office
In August 2018, a TEAMx Programme Coordination Office (PCO) was created at the University of Innsbruck. The TEAMx PCO receives financial support from the Center for Climate Systems Modeling, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Meteo France, MeteoSwiss, the National Center for Atmospheric Science, the University of Innsbruck, the University of Trento, GeoSphere Austria.
There are six Working Groups (WG) focusing on a series of scientific topics converning the atomosphere over mountainous terrain: chemistry, boundary layer, climate, convection, surface exchange, waves and dynamics. The role of the WGs is to identify specific research goals (based on the TEAMx White Paper), help shape the design of the field campaign and modelling experiments, foster collaboration among members and develop proposals. As the programme develops, a number of task teams have been and will be established to tackle specific tasks such as coordinating the airborne measurements or providing forecasts during the campaign. These come and go as needed. The working groups and task teams are not mutually exclusive, allowing TEAMx participants to contribute to whichever areas they are interested in and match their areas of expertise.
Funding for TEAMx research is acquired through a bottom-up approach. Participating scientists and institutions gather the necessary financial resources from projects supported by national and international research funding agencies after successful peer-review. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed among the institutions that support TEAMx. The TEAMx partnership welcomes new participating institutions, as foreseen by §21 of the MoU.
Two committees, the Field Observations Committee (FOC) and the Numerical Modelling Committee (NMC) are responsible for coordinating and leading the design of strategically important matters, i.e. the main field campaign and modelling experiments.
Science Advisory Board
In 2023, a Science Advisory Board (SAB) has been established to oversee and review planned activites. Its members are renowned scientists from a diverse range of fields, each bringing their unique expertise to the table.
