Observations of anthropogenic global warming

IPCC AR5 references – WG1 Chapter 2, observations: atmosphere and surface

Posted by Ari Jokimäki on November 19, 2013

IPCC reports have extensive reference lists but unfortunately they don’t include direct links to papers. Below are the references in IPCC AR5 WG1 Chapter 2, observations: atmosphere and surface references with links to abstract pages and full texts where available. The reference list of chapter 2 is very much in draft state – there are lot (and I do mean lot) of errors and missing information in the entries. I informed IPCC about some errors I found at early stage of going though this list, but they answered that it’s just a draft and didn’t seem very interested. I hope they correct it for the final version because it will be embarrasment otherwise. It seems that almost every other entry has some kind of mistake (badly spelled title, incomplete citation,…).

Another curious feature of this reference list is that here and there there are references to EGU discussion papers. They are not peer-reviewed papers, but papers currently under peer-review. It’s not very good idea to use them as references in IPCC reports because the papers in questions might have been rejected and then IPCC report would have non-peer-reviewed references. However, all of the discussion papers referenced here turned out to have final accepted papers, so they were in luck this time.
