Following IGBP's first landmark synthesis published in 2004 Global Change and the Earth System: a planet under pressure (Springer), we are embarking on our second synthesis scheduled for completion in 2015. The synthesis will bring together the key Earth-system research findings in the last decade from across our projects to build on the foundations of concepts such as the Anthropocene and planetary stewardship.
IGBP synthesis committee chairs
a) The Anthropocene synthesis: James Syvitski and Eduardo Brondizio
b) The Earth-system synthesis: Jan Willem Erisman and Guy Brasseur
c) The Core-project synthesis: Paul Monks
The outcomes will be published as peer-reviewed articles.
IGBP closed at the end of 2015. This website is no longer updated.
