50 influential papers for atmospheric chemistry
Former IGAC co-chair Paul Monks is soliciting the communities input on 50 influential papers for atmospheric chemistry. See this letter from Paul.
Deadline to submit your contributions is 10 January 2018

Dear IGAC Community,

We would like to encourage you to email your submitted papers on topics relevant to short-lived climate forcers and their implications for air quality to the lead authors of IPCC AR6 WG1 chapter 6 (‘Short-lived climate forcers’) via .

All papers received will be treated as confidential.

The deadlines for citation in AR6 WG1 are submission by 31st December 2019 and acceptance by 30th September 2020.

We would appreciate it if you could include in the subject of your email: ‘IPCC AR6 WGI Chapter 6: Relevant paper’.

Best wishes, 
AR6 Chapter 6 Lead Authors
