IPCC AR6 review extension

ipcc*New deadlines 29 May and 5 June 2020*

The IPCC has been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and related measures undertaken by governments. They support the strong and swift action undertaken worldwide, but note this has serious implications for the timely completion of the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report.
IPCC will extend the government and expert review of the Second Order Draft of the Working Group I (WGI) contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), originally scheduled to run until 26 April 2020, by six weeks to Friday 5 June 2020.
You must register by 29 May and ensure all review comments are uploaded to the review system by 11:59 CET Friday 5 June 2020.

The Second-Order Draft (SOD) of the Working Group 1 (WG1) contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) sixth assessment report (AR6) is now open for review.

To facilitate a robust review of the paleoscience information, which is integrated throughout the report, a comprehensive list of the paleoscience contents is now available here. It was assembled by Darrell Kaufman with help from members of PAGES' Early-Career Network (ECN) and students at Northern Arizona University, USA.

Community feedback is needed to focus the key messages from paleosciences and to assure that the report presents the most current, comprehensive, and balanced treatment of the policy-relevant topics.

Input is also needed to identify the major paleoclimate/environment proxy and climate forcing datasets that inform the assessment of the state of knowledge. These resources are cataloged in Annex II, which is devoted to paleoclimate data. It is organized by multiple paleo reference periods that represent different climate states and that are the focus of paleoclimate modeling.

All review comments and authors’ responses are made available publicly. Reviewers are recognized for their input, with their name and affiliation included in the Annex of Reviewers in the published WG1 report in April 2021.

To review the report, register with the IPCC by 29 May (here) and submit by 5 June 2020 (here).
