On 9 April 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) announced the scientific experts for the Sixth Assessment Report. Among the nominated lead authors, Dr. Sönke Zaehle, group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, will contribute to the preparation of the partial report on the Global carbon and other biogeochemical cycles and feedbacks.

The new Sixth Assessment Report AR6, due to be published in 2021/22, comprises three scientific working group reports and a summary synthesis report. The IPCC report provides decision-makers, stakeholders and international climate negotiators with the latest scientific findings on climate change, its consequences, risks and possible measures for mitigation and adaptation.

The first part to be prepared by working group I deals with the latest state of the art in climate change research. Dr. Sönke Zaehle will contribute his scientific expertise on a honorary basis. "I am really looking forward to exciting discussions about our current state of knowledge", explains the head of the Terrestrial Biosphere Modelling research group.
