The blog will now also host a newsletter specially dedicated to Early Career Scientists of the Atmospheric Sciences Divisions.
ECS – AS News – Issue 1 – June 2017
FROM THE PRESIDENT
I hope that you by now have digested all the excellent science and events that took place during the EGU GA in April. I would like to thank you all for your contribution that made the Atmospheric Sciences program such a great success! Overall, ECS represent about 50% of the people attending the EGU GA and almost 20% of the participants are associated with the Atmospheric Sciences Division, so you are really a vital part of the community. I hope that we can make next year’s program even better for you, so please feel free to suggest ways on how we can improve things. An additional option is of course to join forces with Ali Hoshyaripour and the rest of the AS ECS team of representatives – they are doing a great job thinking about how to support, inform and connect all Early Career Atmospheric Scientists!
I wish you all a wonderful summer.
Annica Ekman – President of the EGU Atmospheric Division

Biosketch of Prof. Guy Brasseur
Guy P. Brasseur studied at the Free University of Brussels, Belgium and obtained his PhD in 1978. During the following years, he worked at the Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy, where he developed advanced models of photochemistry and transport in the middle atmosphere. In 1988, he moved to NCAR where he became Director of Atmospheric Chemistry Division in 1990.
Between 1992 and 1996, he served as Editor in Chief of the Journal of Geophysical Research (Atmospheres), and during the period 1994-2001, became Chair of the International Atmospheric Chemistry Project (IGAC) of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program (IGBP). On January 2000, Brasseur moved to Hamburg, Germany, where he became Director at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, and Honorary Professor at the Universities of Hamburg and Brussels. From 2002 to 2005, he was the Chair of the Scientific Committee of the International Geosphere Biosphere Programme (IGBP). He was a Coordinating Lead Author for the fourth Assessment Report (WG-1) of the International Panel for Climate Change(IPCC). The IPCC was awarded the Peace Nobel Prize in 2007. Between January 2006 and July 2009, Brasseur was an Associate Director of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and Head of the Earth and Sun Systems Laboratory. Between July 2009 and June 2014, he directed the Climate Service Center (CSC) in Hamburg, Germany. He is now an External Member of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology and a Distinguished Scholar at NCAR.
Brasseur is a member of the Academy of Sciences of Hamburg, an associate member of the Royal Academy of Belgium (Class: Technology and Society) and a foreign member of the Norwegian Academy of Sciences. He is also a member of the Academia Europea. He is Doctor Honoris Causa of the Universities of Oslo, Paris (Pierre and Marie Curie) and Athens. He was awarded several prizes including the 2014 Abate Molina Prize in Chile. Brasseur is currently the Chair of the Joint Science Committee of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). His primary scientific interests are questions related to Global Change, climate variability, chemistry-climate relations, biosphere-atmosphere interactions, climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion, global air pollution including tropospheric ozone, solar-terrestrial relations. He has contributed in more than 200 peer-reviewed publications and books and has been very active in climate science communication and knowledge dissemination.
