IPCC: Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate

In September 2019, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a special report that "assessed the latest scientific knowledge about the physical science basis and impacts of climate change on ocean, coastal, polar and mountain ecosystems, and the human communities that depend on them," and also highlights "options for achieving climate-resilient development pathways." At the link above, readers will find a link to the report's Download page, as well as its official press release (available in English and 5 other languages), an 11-page Fact Sheet, a recording of the IPCC's press conference that was live-streamed on YouTube and Facebook, and more. On the Download page, readers will find options to download a 45-page Summary for Policymakers, or they may download the full 1,170-page report either as 6 individual chapters or as a single PDF. This section also offers material like a Glossary of scientific terms (available as a 34-page PDF) and supplementary content for each chapter of the report. The IPCC was established by the United Nations in 1988 to examine and synthesize current knowledge on global climate change. This report was prepared by over 100 experts from 36 countries and references roughly 7,000 scientific publications.
