Acknowledgments by the Synthesis Panel

The work of the other panels was indispensable in the preparation of this report. George F. Carrier was chairman of the Effects Panel; Thomas H. Lee was chairman of the Mitigation Panel; and Paul E. Waggoner was chairman of the Adaptation Panel.

While this report represents the work of the panel, it would not have been produced without the support of professional staff from the Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine: Rob Coppock, who drafted the chapters and the question and answers section (Appendix A), and refined them on the basis of the panel's discussions and conclusions, and Deborah Stine, whose work on the Mitigation Panel report is reflected in Chapter 6. Nancy Crowell contributed to preparation of the Adaptation and Mitigation panel reports and the administrative organization of the study. Their resumes are included with those of the panel in Appendix W because of their intellectual contributions, which advanced the committee's efforts throughout the study. The report was greatly improved by the diligent work of its editor, Roseanne Price. In addition, invaluable support was provided by Marion Roberts.

The panel also acknowledges with appreciation presentations made at meetings of the Synthesis Panel by the following persons:

Frederick Bernthal, Assistant Secretary of State
Roger Dower, World Resources Institute
Jae Edmonds, Battelle Northwest Laboratories
James Hansen, Goddard Institute for Space Studies
Dale Jorgenson, Harvard University
