Dr. Pascale Braconnot is a researcher at the Laboratory for Climate and Environmental Sciences (LSCE) at the Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace (IPSL) in Paris, France. She is a specialist in climate modeling and paleoclimatology. At present, she is working on the Modelling the Earth Response to Multiple Anthropogenic Interactions and Dynamics (MERMAID) project, using the IPSL Earth System model.Pascale participated in writing chapters of the 4th and 5th IPCC Reports and received, in 2009, the Milutin Milanković Medal from the European Geophysical Union, awarded for her original work on understanding the relative roles of obliquity and precession during the last interglacial period and, in particular, for her major involvement in the Paleoclimate Modeling Intercomparison Project for the Mid-Holocene.

Dr. Helen Cleugh is an atmospheric scientist with almost 30 years’ experience combining research discovery, delivery, and leadership. She was appointed as a member of the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee (JSC) in 2015 and elected as JSC Vice-Chair in 2019. Her research expertise lies in quantifying the interactions between the land surface and the atmosphere, and their effects on weather, climate and hydrology; and water-use and carbon uptake. This research has provided data, information, and knowledge for decision and policy-makers in government; resource managers; urban planners; and the agriculture sector.

Prof. Pierre Friedlingstein is a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit recipient, he holds a Chair in Mathematical Modelling of the Climate System at the University of Exeter. His research interests are in the field of global biogeochemical cycles and their interaction with the climate system. More specifically, he is interested in the role biogeochemical cycles in the climate system over time scales ranging from glacial-interglacial to future IPCC-like projections. For future climate projections, he identified a positive feedback between climate change and the carbon cycle and developed a mathematical framework for climate-carbon feedbacks analysis. He is also involved in the development and evaluation of land surface models (JULES) and their inclusion in Earth System Models.

Prof. James (Jim) Hurrell joined Colorado State University faculty in September 2018 as the Scott Presidential Chair in Environmental Science and Engineering and a professor in the Department of Atmospheric. Professor Hurrell’s personal research has centered on empirical and modeling studies and diagnostic analyses to better understand climate, climate variability and climate change, with an emphasis on the mechanisms, predictability and impacts of leading patterns of climate variability. He is especially interested in naturally occurring variations in climate on decadal timescales, and the predictability of those variations.
