2nd BACC II Lead Author Team meeting approves updated structure for the BACC II book

The 2nd BACC II Lead Author Team meeting took place on 28 and 29 March 2011. Almost all BACC II Lead Authors gathered in Hamburg, Germany; even a colleague presently in “Down Under” was able to participate in the meeting via Skype.

The aim of this meeting was the finalization of the BACC II book chapter structure and the clarification of open issues from the first Lead Author Team meeting in Gothenburg. Since then, Lead Authors had the opportunity to draft chapter outlines and to approach contributing authors. Based on this, a clearer picture of the respective chapter contents evolved, and the overall book structure could be discussed with a better background. The outcome of the meeting was a significantly improved chapter structure, which was approved as final structure following a vivid discussion (with minor adjustments still possible during the writing and editing process). Open issues like approximate chapter lengths were also settled. Now the writing process has commenced.
