Post-IPCC assessment of climate impacts using existing scenarios – advances in understanding (B1a)

This review summarises the available literature on the impacts of climate change at different levels of climate forcing. It builds on the literature summarised in AR5 WG2 (IPCC 2014a) and includes studies published since. It focuses on studies which have explicitly compared impacts at different levels of climate […]

AVOID 1: PAGE09 V1.5 economic impacts model reconciliation with MAGICC simple climate model

October 11, 2011
|

The PAGE (Policy Analysis of Greenhouse Effect) integrated assessment model (IAM) was used in the AVOID programme to estimate the cost of avoided impacts. Estimates of costs of climate impacts depend critically on the ability of the IAM to produce a credible temperature rise for a given emissions […]

AVOID 1: Dangerous Climate Change Assessment Project Final Report

March 31, 2011
|

The 1992 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) commits signatories to achieving a “stabilisation of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system”, leaving unspecified the level of global warming that is “dangerous” (Oppenheimer and Petsonk […]

AVOID 1: A meta analysis of existing sea-level rise projections

May 18, 2010
|

The 4th IPCC assessment projected that without further acceleration of the dynamic contribution from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets 21st century sea-level rise will be in the range of approximately 20 to 60cm. They also stated that increases in this dynamic contribution could lead to a […]

AVOID 1: Temperature implications from the IPCC 5th assessment Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP)

April 22, 2010
|

Temperature projections are made for the IPCC fifth assessment report (AR5) scenarios, referred to as “Representative Concentration Pathways” (RCPs), using the MAGICC simple climate model.

These RCPs have been chosen to span climate outcomes rather than socioeconomic futures, but are found to closely match key mitigated and non […]
