AR6 review: Register by 29 May

ipccFriday 29 May is the deadline for registering to review the IPCC-AR6 WGI report "Physical Science Basis of Climate Change".

This is the final opportunity to help expand the impact of paleoscience in this major international report.

Register (here) by 29 May and upload your comments (here) by 5 June 2020.

You can comment on as much or as little of the report as you want.

The paleoscience information in the report is located as follows:

1. Paleo content in chapters: Text on paleo science is included in most of the 12 chapters. For a list of specific topics and section numbers, you may refer to the Paleo Table of Contents (here).

2. Paleo Executive Summary (ES) Statements: Paleoscience is mentioned in a total of 27 ES statements. These ES statements are the basis for the distillation for the report as presented in the Technical Summary and Summary for Policy Makers. Contact any of the WG1 paleoclimate authors (here) to access a document with the 27 paleo ES statements compiled from all chapters.

3. Paleo key messages and summary chapters: Paleoscience information has been successfully distributed across the WG1 report, as prescribed by the scoping documents. Suggestions are now needed to promote new insights from paleoscience across the report. Contributions that advance key messages from paleoscience are especially needed in the Technical Summary, along with suggestions on the relevant underlying evidence within individual chapters.

4. Annex II – Paleoclimate Data: This Annex is a compilation of key references that report paleoclimate and long-term forcing datasets. So far, Annex II only lists the major datasets used in Chapter 2. Suggestions are welcomed for additional datasets to include in Annex II.
