Ken Drinkwater from Norway and Co-Chair of ESSAS is one of the review editors for a chapter of the IPCC report that will address ‘Ocean Systems’.

Two other scientists who have taken part in ESSAS activities will be involved as lead authors in other chapters of the IPCC report. Svein Sundby of Norway will be a lead author of the chapter on ‘Open Oceans’ and Ann Hollowed will be a lead author of the chapter on the ‘Polar Region’.
