Americas Working Group

Under the guiding principle of providing equal opportunity for all scientists in the Americas, the IGAC Americas Working Group aims to build a cohesive network and foster the next generation of atmospheric scientists with the ultimate goal of contributing to development of a scientific community focused on building collective knowledge in/for the Americas. There is a priority on bringing together scientists from across the entirety of the Americas. To this end, the Americas Working Group seeks to:

  • Improve the collaboration and communication between scientists in Latin America;
  • Connect the Latin America community to the international community;
  • Train and foster the next generation of scientists;
  • Influence and promote a more proportionate distribution of funds for research
  • Enhance visibility and credibility of scientists in Latin America
