New IPCC Report Released

The fifth assessment report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) has now been publically released (http://www.ipcc.ch/). Anybody who is involved in any kind of environmental research should have a look at this new publication (which may be freely downloaded as a 160MB PDF file). As well as summarising the new science relating to climate change, it discusses themes such as climate change projections for the next hundred years and specific future regional changes around the world. Dr Mark Cresswell (a member of the UNIGIS team) has previously worked at the UK Met. Office whilst evaluating the scientific and technical quality of the ensemble prediction system that is the basis of climate modelling experiments today.
