Scoping Meeting for the IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Oceans and the Cryosphere
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the major scientific and academic body worldwide that assesses the scientific, technical and socioeconomic information relevant to the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change. At its 43rd Session in Nairobi in April 2016, the Panel agreed to prepare a Special Report on Climate Change and Oceans and the Cryosphere. To develop the scope and outline of the Special Report on Climate Change and Oceans and the Cryosphere, a Scoping Meeting is being held, resulting in a draft Scoping Paper describing the objectives and an annotated outline of the Special Report, as well as the process and timeline for its preparation.
As part of the Scoping Meeting, Professor Ben Orlove spoke with Regine Hock, Professor of Geophysics at University of Alaska Fairbanks, on the topic of “Melting Ice, including Terrestrial Glaciers & Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in Indigenous Populations,” on December 6, 2016 at 11:20 am.
