Scientific Programs Evaluation Committee (SPEC)

Members of the Scientific Programs Evaluation Committee (SPEC) evaluate the quality of UCAR and NCAR programs. At the invitation of the National Science Foundation, SPEC members may participate as observers in the NSF reviews of UCAR and NCAR management and programs, as appropriate.
