Factsheets

Pacific factsheets on the Physical Science Basis

The IPCC's most recent report assesses the physical science of climate change; including how and why climate has changed to date and is projected to change in future. These factsheets are focussed on the Pacific and have been developed to assist Pacific decision-makers.   They cover four key themes from the report as they relate to the Pacific:

  1. Temperature and greenhouse gas emissions
  2. Rainfall and water availability
  3. Ocean and coasts
  4. Weather and climate extremes
