The U.S. Department of State seeks nominations for U.S. scientists with requisite expertise to serve as Lead Authors or Review Editors on the Working Group I, II, and III contributions to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) AR6. The relevant decision documents from the 46th Session of the Panel (Montreal, Canada • 6–10 September), including annotated outlines, can be found on the IPCC web site(link is external). Approved chapter listings are appended below.

Additional information and the nominations vehicle can be found on the USGCRP Public Contributions System. Note: Users wishing to have selves or colleagues considered by more than one Working Group must submit discrete nominations for each to ensure inclusion in the proper candidate pool(s).

This is an Open Call. All registered users can nominate U.S. citizens and permanent lawful residents to be considered by the IPCC Working Group Bureaux responsible for respective contributions to the AR6. The USGCRP nominations system for this process will be disabled on Tuesday, 24 October 2017, and a nominations package transmitted on behalf of the U.S. IPCC Focal Point on 27 October. The IPCC Secretariat will issue appointment memos in February 2018.
