JGChief Officer: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. is a senior scientist working for the Alfred Wegener Institute, Hemholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, Germany (AWI), and has been involved in polar science since 1984. He has contributed to a variety of international programmes in committees and via his own field research, mainly focussing on benthic systems. Recently he was the chief scientist of an interdisciplinary expedition with R/V Polarstern and PI of a project (to be continued) on the response of the marine ecosystems to the Larsen ice shelf disintegration. He is co-editor and one of the lead-authors of SCAR's ACCE report with its regular updates. He contributed to the 1st SCAR Horizon Scan and is co-editor of the SCAR Biogeographic Atlas. In addition to his scientific work at AWI, he is professor at the Oldenburg University (Germany) and lead-author of the Global Assessment of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). J. Gutt has published approx. 72 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 35 with 1st authorship.
