Link Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) — 04 May 2007
CLIVAR is the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) project that addresses Climate Variability and Predictability, with a particular focus on the role of ocean-atmosphere interactions in climate. It works closely with its companion WCRP projects on issues such as the role of the land surface, snow and ice and the role of stratospheric processes in climate.
Link Center for International Climate and Environmental Research - Oslo (CICERO) — 04 May 2007
CICERO’s mission is to provide reliable and comprehensive knowledge about all aspects of the climate change problem.
Link United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) — 04 May 2007
The Convention on Climate Change sets an overall framework for intergovernmental efforts to tackle the challenge posed by climate change. It recognizes that the climate system is a shared resource whose stability can be affected by industrial and other emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. The Convention enjoys near universal membership, with 192 countries having ratified.
Link Encylopedia of the Atmospheric Environment — 04 May 2007
The Encyclopedia of the Atmospheric Environment is a one-stop source of information, for younger and older users alike, on a range of atmospheric issues, including air quality, acid rain, global warming and ozone depletion. It has been written by the Atmosphere, Climate & Environment Information Programme, and is supported by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) in the UK.
Link IPCC Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (TFI) — 04 May 2007
The Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (TFI) was established by the IPCC to oversee the IPCC National Greenhouse Gas Inventories Programme (IPCC-NGGIP). The objectives of the IPCC-NGGIP are to develop and refine an internationally-agreed methodology and software for the calculation and reporting of national GHG emissions and removals, and to encourage the widespread use of this methodology by countries participating in the IPCC and by signatories of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Link Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) — 04 May 2007
The IPCC was established to provide the decision-makers and others interested in climate change with an objective source of information about climate change. The IPCC does not conduct any research nor does it monitor climate related data or parameters. Its role is to assess on a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent basis the latest scientific, technical and socio-economic literature produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change, its observed and projected impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.
