The ESA Climate Office team comprises Pascal Lecomte, Stephen Plummer, Simon Pinnock, Ed Pechorro, Cat Downy, Anna-Maria Trofaier, Malgorzata Wysocka, Stephen Briggs, and Michael Eisinger. Pascal Lecomte (Head of ESA Climate Office) is also Chair of the Joint CEOS/CGMS Working Group on Climate (WGClimate), the body of major space agencies responsible for responding to the UNFCCC and GCOS on the monitoring of climate from space.
