IPCC Releases Report of Expert Meeting on Detection and Attribution Related to Anthropogenic Climate Change

4 February 2010: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has published a report of the expert meeting on Detection and Attribution Related to Anthropogenic Climate Change.

The meeting, organized jointly by Working Groups I (Physical Science Basis and Impacts) and II (Adaptation and Vulnerability), was held in Geneva, Switzerland, from 14-16 September 2009. The scientific core of the meeting report summarises the discussions and conclusions of the expert meeting. It seeks to clarify methods, definitions and terminology across the two Working Groups, and is intended as a stand-alone Good Practice Guidance Paper for Lead Authors for the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report. The report also includes the extended abstracts of the presentations from the expert meeting, as well as a general, non-comprehensive bibliography on detection and attribution of anthropogenic climate change.
