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.

GA is developing the target fabrication and insertion capabilities required for a >100 TW rep-rated laser to be built at Ohio State University. We will be assembling an integrated system that includes mass target production, separation and assembly onto carriers, rapid insertion and precise alignment. We will describe target-mounting methods we have investigated for holding targets on target carriers at a repeatable position with respect to location fiducials fabricated into the carriers. The effect of shaking the target carrier on the repeatability of the target location will be examined. Alignment of the target using the carrier fiducials will also be described.
