IPCC Sixth Assessment Report: An overview of the physical science of climate change for the Pacific

On 9 August 2021, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its 7-yearly assessment on the state of our climate. This report focuses on the physical science of climate change, covering Pacific climate phenomena including temperature rise, rainfall, marine heatwaves, tropical cyclones, sea level rise, ocean acidity and coastal flooding. IPCC reports are the world’s most authoritative sources of climate science, approved by 195 countries.  The webinar will discuss the main findings of the report and its implications for the Pacific.

Prof Mark Howden is a Vice Chair of Working Group II and has assisted in the final approval process of the report. He will give a presentation on the key findings, before participating in a panel discussion. The panel discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A session.
