CONTRIBUTIONS TO ASSESSMENT REPORTS

2012 - 2013 Contributing author on global tropospheric O3 trends for the Working Group I contribution to the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis (AR5)
2012 - 2014 Contributing author on global tropospheric O3 trends and distribution in the "State of the Climate in 2012" and "State of the Climate in 2013" reports, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
2006 - present Owen Cooper is a member of the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution (TF HTAP). Established by the Executive Body of the UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution, TF HTAP produces assessment reports on the hemispheric transport of air pollutants. Owen was a lead coordinating author on Chapter 2 of the 2007 Interim Report, a lead coordinating author on Chapter A1 of the 2010 Assessment Report, and a contributing author to Chapter A2.
