Union Session U22A

This Union Session will feature five invited keynote presentations on highly policy-relevant climate change topics from the Working Group I contribution to the IPCC's 5th Assessment Report: Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis. The topics are: observations, clouds and aerosols, carbon cycle, sea level rise, and climate change projections. The purpose of these science presentations is to explain the recent assessment to the wider science community, to discuss gaps in scientific understanding and major uncertainties, and to identify areas of future research.
