The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has released an online version of Working Group I’s (WGI) section of the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). Professor Ranga Myneni was a lead authors on Chapter Six “Carbon and Other Biogeochemical Cycles.”

The IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) assess the state of our current knowledge of climate change and provides scientific information to better equip policy makers on the future of climate change. Material from WGI’s portion of AR5 was used to prepare a Summary for Policy Makers (SPM) which was vetted by representatives of all governments involved and adopted as an official statement of The Physical Science Basis of Climate Change at this point. The SPM was released in late September 2013. Cambridge University Press will release print copies of WGI’s report, “Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis,” in the coming months.

IPCC will also release the remaining sections of AR5, Working Group II, Working Group III, and a Synthesis Report, in the coming months. For more information on IPCC and AR5 visit IPCC’s website.
