COLLOQUIUM: Future Projections of Climate Change: An Update from IPCC AR5IPCC AR5 WG1 Report

Dr. Claudia Tebaldi
NCAR

I will present some highlights from the chapter on long term projections [Collins et al., 2013] of the latest assessment report by IPCC Working Group 1, AR5. I will try to cover the main messages and highlight consistencies and novel results in comparison to the previous report’s content, IPCC AR4. I will touch upon the new scenarios used (Representative Concentration Pathways); patterns of change in temperature and precipitation; the concept of climate response to cumulative emissions, and aspects of commitment and irreversibility.

This presentation draws upon the work of the whole chapter team, of which I was a member.
