Dr Gilbert Brunet has been elected chairman of the World Meteorological Organization’s Scientific Advisory Panel.

Dr Brunet, who is chief scientist and group executive of Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology, will work with vice chair Opha Dube on the panel that was established in 2019 and consists of 15 international experts tasked with advising WMO’s Congress and Executive Council on matters concerning research strategies and the scientific direction of the future.

“I look forward to working with fellow Scientific Advisory Panel members and other organs of WMO to advance equity and access to meteorological science and research in the regions of WMO and embrace an integrated use-driven perspective for global adaptation and resilience building,” said Dube, associate professor in the department of environmental science at the University of Botswana.

Meanwhile, Jurg Luterbacher has been named as chief scientist for the WMO secretariat, which he will combine with his role as director of science and innovation at WMO.
