Session 6
National ESSAS programs: Recent advances and contribution


Olafur S. Astthorsson (Iceland)
Yasunori Sakurai (Japan)
Svein Sundby (Norway)
Kai Wieland (Denmark)

Invited Speakers:

Sen Tok Kim (Russia) - presents on May 24, Plenary Session
Orio Yamamura (Japan) - presents on May 24, Plenary Session

Several large national programs under ESSAS have been completed or are underway, including in Japan, the US, Iceland and Norway. In addition, several other countries are involved in ESSAS studies although having no formal nationally-funded project. This session provides the opportunity to present the results from all of the ESSAS programs. In particular, presentations that provide a synthesis of large or several smaller projects within a nation are especially encouraged.
