Photo Jean JouzelShort Bio of Dr. Jean Jouzel: Research director (emeritus) at the CEA, Jean Jouzel is an expert in climate and glaciology. He has mainly worked on the reconstruction of past climate derived from the study of the Antarctic and Greenland ice. He has been a vice-chair of the Scientific Working Group of the IPCC (co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize 2007) from 2002 to 2015. In 2012, he was awarded the Vetlesen Prize, which is referred to as the “Nobel Prize for Earth sciences”. He is a foreign member of NAS (US National Academy of Sciences) and a member of the French Academy of Sciences.

Photo Lonnie ThompsonShort bio of Dr. Lonnie Thompson: Lonnie G. Thompson is a foremost authority on paleoclimatology and glaciology. In the last 40 years he has led 63 ice-core drilling programs from the Polar Regions to the tropics. His numerous honors and awards include the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement, the U.S. National Medal of Science and the International Science and Technology Cooperation Award. He is a member of the U.S National Academy of Sciences and a foreign member of the Chinese National Academy of Sciences.

Photo Örjan GustafssonShort bio of Dr. Örjan Gustafsson: Gustafsson is awarded a European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant for studies of Cryosphere-Carbon-Climate Interactions. His group combines studies of the dynamics and effects of Arctic terrestrial and subsea permafrost thawing with investigations on sources, composition and radiative effects of aerosols in source and receptor areas of the circum-Arctic, Africa, and South-Southeast-East Asia, including across the Third Pole – all in close collaboration with partners in the different regions.

Photo Katarina GårdfeldtShort bio of Dr. Katarina Gårdfeldt: Since January 1, 2018, Gårdfeldt is appointed by the Swedish Government as Director-General for the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat, SPRS. She was the initiator of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network Northern Europe (SDSN NE). She is Associate Professor in Environmental Inorganic Chemistry at Chalmers University of Technology, and the previous Director of the Centre for Sustainable Development (GMV) at University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology.
