IPCC opens registration for expert review of draft report
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)—the United Nations body established to assess the science related to climate change—is offering experts an opportunity to review the draft version of its Sixth Assessment Synthesis Report.
IPCC assessment reports are published every six to seven years. The Fifth Assessment Report, completed in 2014, provided the main scientific input to the 2015 Paris Agreement.
Interested experts can register for participation in the review here. Registration is open through March 13. The review period ends on March 20.

The objective of the present study is to analyze separation capability of charged particles of small-scale cusp type direct energy experimental converter installed at GAMMA 10 by means of numerical simulation with the axisymmetrical two-dimensional approximation. The numerical simulation has given the following results: (1) when the input power of protons is less than or equal to 1W, the protons and the electrons can be separated with the proton collection efficiency of 100%. When the input power of protons is 5W, the protons and the electrons become difficult to be separated with the proton collection efficiency of about 5%. (2) The electrons whose radius of incidence is small become trapped in the separation zone. These results depend on the magnitude of self-induced electric field which is formed by separation of the protons and the electrons.
