Terms of Reference
  1. The REX Task Team is responsible for promoting and coordinating research activities related to the CCCC Program among member nations. This goal could be accomplished by convening meetings or distributing information designed to foster cooperation among existing or developing programs;
  2. The REX Task Team should foster communication among PICES members regarding advancements in scientific method or research findings. This may be achieved through written communications (e.g. newsletters, home pages, or e-mail communications), and by convening periodic scientific symposia or workshops. Communication and data exchange will be coordinated jointly through REX and TCODE;
  3. The REX Task Team should encourage establishment of component programs where needed; and
  4. The REX Task Team should identify linkages between regional studies and basin scale studies.
The objective of the REX Task Team is to develop inter-comparisons among regional (national) studies.
