IPCC workshop on sea level rise and ice sheet instabilities. Workshop report ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Workshop, organized by Working Group I (WGI), addressed a topic of key importance for the WGI contribution to the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). Sea level rise is one of the longest-term consequences of continued increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gases and threatens the livelihood of millions of people. While the physical processes that influence sea level changes are well known and established, the uncertainties in the projections of some of the components contributing to sea level rise are still unacceptably high. The largest uncertainty is associated with the response of the large ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica, and their sensitivity to atmospheric and oceanic warming and changes in precipitation. For these reasons, the IPCC Plenary approved the proposal of WGI to hold an IPCC Workshop very early in the AR5 cycle so that the scientific progress since the last IPCC assessment (IPCC AR4, 2007) could be highlighted for a wider audience and areas of emerging results or major remaining questions could be discussed. The experts attending the Workshop covered a wide range of specialties including in situ and remote sensing observations of ice sheet movement and mass balance, reconstructions and direct observations of past and present sea level changes on regional to global scales, changes in ocean properties and circulation, glacier mass balance and dynamics, simulation of ice sheets and short and long-term climate projections. As sea level change is a truly cross-cutting issue, this workshop offered the opportunity to bring together scientists from research communities that normally tend to interact comparatively little. This Workshop Report contains a concise summary of the overall discussions and conclusions of the Workshop as well as summaries of the discussions in the breakout groups.It further includes the extended abstracts of the keynote presentations and poster abstracts presented during the Workshop.

IPCC expert meeting on assessing and combining multi model climate projections. Meeting report ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Climate model results provide the basis for projections of future climate change and increasing numbers of models are likely to contribute to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC AR5). The heterogeneity in the new generation of climate models and an increasing emphasis on estimates of uncertainty in the projections raise questions about how best to evaluate and combine model results in order to improve the reliability of projections. Therefore, an Expert Meeting on Assessing and Combining Multi Model Climate Projections was organized by IPCC's Working Group I with contributions from Working Group II (WGI and WGII). The meeting was held in Boulder, Colorado, USA, from 25 to 27 January 2010. It is important for the success of the IPCC AR5 that this discussion took place early in the AR5 assessment cycle. The Expert Meeting provided a platform to explore the possibility of establishing a common framework that is applicable across the two IPCC Working Groups. The scientific core of this meeting report summarises the discussions and conclusions of the Expert Meeting. It contains a stand-alone Good Practice Guidance Paper for IPCC Lead Authors of AR5, as well as for scientists working in model intercomparison projects. The Guidance Paper briefly summarizes methods used in assessing the quality and reliability of climate model simulations and in combining results from multiple models, and provides recommendations for good practice in using multi-model ensembles. Applications include detection and attribution, model evaluation and global climate projections as well as regional projections relevant for impact and adaptation studies. This meeting report further includes the extended abstracts of the presentations and posters from the Expert Meeting as well as a noncomprehensive bibliography of relevant literature. (LN)

IPCC expert meeting on the science of alternative metrics. Meeting report ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Based on the expert contributions and discussions at the Expert Meeting, and taking into account the current status of the science of alternative metrics reported in the scientific literature, the following key conclusions and recommendations to UNFCCC have been formulated in response to the UNFCCC request to IPCC and were unanimously agreed on by meeting participants: 1. Global Warming Potential (GWP) is a well-defined metric based on radiative forcing that continues to be useful in a multi-gas approach. Shortcomings have been identified; however the scientific basis has not been fully established to address these shortcomings comprehensively in any currently discussed metric; 2. The effectiveness of the use of a given metric depends on the primary policy goal, for example to limit the long term temperature change, limit rates of change, avoid particular impacts, and balance costs and benefits. The GWP was not designed with a particular policy goal in mind. Depending on the specific policy goal or goals, alternative metrics may be preferable; 3. The GWP with the time horizon of 100 years is used in the Kyoto Protocol. The numerical value of the GWP can depend markedly on the choice of time horizon. The choice of any particular time horizon involves value judgments in terms of future commitment to radiative forcing; 4. Timely information on potential future policy goals would facilitate research on alternative metrics. Recommendations to the Scoping of IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5): 1. It is important that the assessment of metrics be included in the IPCC AR5 process in an integrated manner with participation from all three working groups and the IPCC Task Force on Greenhouse Gas Inventories (TFI); 2. This process should include an assessment of, and if appropriate, numerical values for metrics that have been proposed in the literature; 3.The assessment should elucidate the relationship between physical metrics and more comprehensive metrics that include economics.
