International Panel on Climate Change a la Jay

The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has a considerable set of informational, research, and educational materials regarding global climate change. Because of this, I have prepared a summary page of what I find to be valuable resources available from the IPCC. First I will introduce them and then provide a series of links to their resources. The IPCC has a broad scope of directives and programs, so the links will be sorted by topic. Most people are familiar with the Assessment Reports, so I will link those first in the resources section of this page.

Background on the IPCC

From their organizational web page:

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the leading international body for the assessment of climate change. It was established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of knowledge in climate change and its potential environmental and socio-economic impacts. In the same year, the UN General Assembly endorsed the action by WMO and UNEP in jointly establishing the IPCC.
