Jean-Pierre Gattuso is CNRS Research Professor at the Laboratoire d'Océanographie de Villefranche (Sorbonne University). He is also Associate Scientist at the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI-SciencesPo, Paris). His current research relates to the effects of ocean acidification and warming on marine ecosystems and the services that they provide to society. He also investigates ocean-based solutions to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Jean-Pierre Gattuso led the launch of the Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre at the International Atomic Energy Agency. He coedited the first book on ocean acidification (Oxford University Press) and contributed to several IPCC products (AR5, Special Report on 1.5°C of Warming, and the Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere). He received the Vladimir Vernadsky medal of the European Geosciences Union, the Blaise Pascal medal of the European Academy of Sciences (of which he is an elected member), and the Ruth Patrick Award of the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography. Jean-Pierre Gattuso is an elected member of Academia Europea. More information: http://bit.ly/1OQDYeh.

Dr. Bronte Tilbrook is a senior principal research scientist based in Hobart, Tasmania, with CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere and the Australian Antarctic Program Partnership. He has a PhD in chemical oceanography from the University of Hawaii. Tilbrook leads a team that established Australia's ocean observing system for ocean acidification and ocean carbon dioxide uptake and storage. The observational effort extends from the tropics to the Antarctic shelf and is one of the main contributions to coverage of the Southern Hemisphere oceans, which play a pivotal role in the global carbon budget and contain ecosystems considered particularly vulnerable to ocean acidification. He has been involved in a number of international programs to build sustained observing systems to determine changing environmental conditions in the ocean and to develop global data and synthesis products. His current roles include co-chairing the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network and acting as a focal point for the United Nations Community of Ocean Action for Ocean Acidification.
