Elena Ojea will be Lead Author on the 6th IPCC Report
With Elena’s contribution this IPCC Report will include for the first time ever information on the adaptation of marine systems to climate change. This is the topic which Elena has been working on for the past 10 years, most recently through Project CLOCK, funded by the ERC Starting Grant, and the Future Oceans Lab. The main goal of her ongoing research is to provide policy-relevant relevant results to tackle global climate change impacts.
