Call 2021 for scientists & artists

Oceans on the Rise

Submissions by scientists   |   Submissions by artists |   Dear 2050: Oceans on the Rise


Welcome to our call for artists and scientists on Oceans and Climate Change. Here is how you can help make climate science accessible.

Participate with your comments in the preliminary discussions on scientific manuscripts

Preliminary discussions allow a first exchange – and perhaps the most exciting one – around the scientific manuscripts, and they are just about to start!

Make sure you participate by commenting on as many of the manuscripts as you like within this period of two weeks. The authors will use all of your feedbacks to make a first round of improvements to their manuscripts.

Comments are welcome from all members on any aspects of the mansucripts, including the ease of understanding, the narrative, the presentation, the phrasing, and of course the science.

Ready? Scroll down to see the list of scientific manuscripts, and click on a title of your choice…
