Jean JouzelJean Jouzel is Research Director at CNRS in paleo-climatology. He is emeritus Professor at the Laboratory for Climate and Environmental Sciences at the Pierre-Simon Laplace Institute (CEA / CNRS / UVSQ). His career began at the CEA with drilling projects in the Antarctic (Vostok, Grip, Epica). Since then, he has actively participated in many major international glacial drilling programs and has significantly contributed  to the international development of water isotope modeling in the atmosphere

Jean Jouzel has received several awards and honors during his career. First of all, along with his colleague Claude Lorius, he awarded the gold medal of CNRS, the highest scientific distinction in France. In 2012, he received the Vetlesen Award for developing the longest climate series ever recorded (800,000 years) from ice cores harvested in Antarctica and Greenland. Last but not least, on the 12th October 2007, he received the Nobel Peace Prize, along with the IPCC members and the US Vice President Al Gore.
On May 3, 2016, he was elected to the American Academy of Sciences.

During his career, he authored over 250 important scientific publications for the study and understanding of Earth's climate change. Jean Jouzel, Vice-Chairperson of IPCC Working Group I , co-author of several IPCC reports and a series of reports on the climate of France in the 21st century, was a member of the Steering Committee of the COP21.

Since 2009, Jean Jouzel is the President of the French association Méteo et Climat, which actively contributes to the dissemination of scientific knowledge on climate change.
