Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis
Alex Hall, professor of atmospheric and oceanic sciences and faculty director of the Center for Climate Change Solutions selected as Lead Author for Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Assessment.
Alex Hall has been invited to serve as a Lead Author for Chapter 14: “Climate Phenomena and their Relevance for Future Regional Climate Change” of the Working Group I contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC WGI AR5).
The IPCC was established under the auspices of the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Program in 1988 to provide regular assessments for policymakers of the scientific, technical and socio-economic aspects relating to climate change. Working Group I deals with the assessment of the scientific understanding of the physical climate system. This evaluation will share the efforts of climate research experts with policymakers.
As a Lead Author Hall will be serving the scientific community by communicating advances in climate science. Lead Authors contribute writing based on their area of expertise. Hall's work focuses on climate modeling, global climate change and regional climate.
This comprehensive summary of climate change science will be of great value to not just policymakers, but society as a whole as well. The report is slated for completion September 2013.
