The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will release next week its Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate. Over 100 scientists from more than 30 nations have contributed to the report, which will outline the current and projected impacts of climate change on the world’s oceans, ice sheets, and mountain snowpack.
Ahead of its release on Sept. 25, IPCC staff and authors are meeting with government delegates in Monaco to discuss and approve the final text.
GlacierHub’s Ben Orlove is an author on the report and sent some images from the Monaco deliberations.
Preparatory sessions were held Tuesday and Wednesday ahead of approval meetings taking place Friday through Monday. A welcome reception occurred Thursday night and was attended by Monaco’s Prince Albert II.
Check out the images below and keep an eye out next week for GlacierHub’s coverage of the report.
