1. Communicate our research as a synthesis paper to an open-access journal (end of year 1). This Review paper will contribute to IPCC AR6 cycle.
3. Establish a new training course for young scientists moving into this field, with the intention of this becoming an annual or semi-annual event for the foreseeable future (years 3, 4, and beyond).
5. Publish a transdisciplinary thematic series in an open-access journal such as MEPS. Publish a range of articles in both the popular scientific media and with scientific journalists to disseminate the challenges and opportunities surrounding multiple drivers and marine ecosystems.
7. Co-ordinate thematic transdisciplinary sessions at international conferences to attract and assemble experts from fields such as paleoceanography and marine ecotoxicology. Produce a short popular article on this topic in an open-access journal (end of year 2).
2. Produce a BPG or equivalent tool(s) for COBS such as wiki books in conjunction with Copernicus/EGU (end of year 4).
4. Build and maintain an interactive website focused on new approaches to multiple- driver research themes for document and methods collation, open forum discourse, and communication and outreach activities. Actively seek web co-ordinators and a host institution beyond the life of this working group.
6. Policy outreach via the production and dissemination of a clearly written, non- technical guide for marine resource managers and policy managers that includes a glossary of terms and a practical set of recommendations for predictive management of marine multi- driver impacts.
