Detection and Attribution Related to Anthropogenic Climate Change (2010)
IPCC Expert Meeting Report of 14–16 September 2009
The reliable detection and attribution (D&A) of changes in climate and their effects is fundamental to understanding the scientific basis of climate change and in enabling decision makers to manage climate-related risk.
The scientific core of this meeting report summarises the discussions and conclusions of the Expert Meeting on D&A. It seeks to clarify methods, definitions and terminology across the two Working Groups, and is intended as a stand-alone Good Practice Guidance Paper for IPCC Lead Authors. The Guidance Paper will thus serve as a reference document for D&A science and reporting that can also help stakeholders in the interpretation and application of statements in WGI and WGII reports. The meeting report further includes the extended abstracts of the presentations from the Expert Meeting as well as a general, non-comprehensive bibliography on literature relevant to D&A.
