Panel Discussion: Connections and Key Scientific Issues (Bay Auditorium)

This plenary session will provide an opportunity to further develop and integrate the ideas and discussions from the first two days of Keynote presentations and the "Changes and Impacts" and "Feedbacks" parallel sessions. The panel discussion will begin with an overview by the moderator, followed by several questions posed to the panelists. Each panelist will have an opportunity to address the questions from the perspective of his or her expertise. The brief panel presentations will be followed by an open moderated discussion that includes comments and questions from all panelists and members of the audience.
