Dear All,
Here is some text on Climate Science. There is some introduction to the acronyms as
well as the long history of CRU involvement. Some of this won't be necessary, but Clare and
I found oursleves writing foir
At the end there is a page on what needs to be done for the provision of climate
scenarios/services in the light of expected advances over the next few years.
Cheers
Phil

Herewith one page on adaptation. Roger may well wish to amend, as we havent had a chance
to chat yet. Gets the ball rolling.

Dear All

Please find attached some draft text on research themes 3 & 4 (international policy and
low carbon development).

Neil/Roger- can you draft something similar on adaptation?

Phil- can you draft something similar on climate science?

Kevin- if you have anything to add on the low carbon development, let me know.

Since I will have irregular access to e-mail over the next week please send your
contributions to Katherine and Adrian at a minimum to ensure they can pull together all
the UEA inputs.

Thanks and best wishes

Subject: RE: Annual review
Peter et al,
Below I've given you a list of possible climate scientists to sit on the advisory
board. With the UK ones, it is a bit of a guess who might be involved in other bids.
I've omitted anyone at the Met Office Hadley Centre and also at the Grantham Institute
at Imperial.
Before this list, Peter asked if I could think of a figurehead for the Chair of this
Board? I emailed my ex-colleague Jean Palutikof. Here is what she said.
Hi Phil
Hmmm...how about Bob Watson, since he's on the doorstep.
Apart from him, I'd mention Saleemul Huq. Works for IIED, but about to return to head an
institute in Bangladesh (butI'm sure he'll keep strong links in UK). Definitely a DfID
darling.
Depends just how much of a figurehead you want them to be. If totally, then maybe Joe
Alcamo, now UNEP Chief Scientist, based in Nairobi. Very good - was a water systems
modeller at U. Kassel. He's American - maybe has a German wife?
Or Diana Liverman? On leave from Oxford to head the US NAS panel on adaptation.
All the best
Jean
Now for the Climate Scientists
Dr. Karl Taylor (PCMDI, LLNL, Livermore, Ca, USA) - Karl is at the Program for Climate
Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison, where all the climate model simulations for the
future under something called CMIP5 will be housed.
Dr Susan Solomon, NOAA, Boulder, Co, USA - Susan led the WG1 report for AR4 of IPCC
(2007)
Prof Dr Thomas Stocker, University of Bern, Switzerland - Thomas is leading WG1 for AR5
of IPCC (2013)
Prof Bruce Hewitson, University of Cape Town, South Africa
Dr Jens Christenson, Danish Met Institute, Copenhagen, Denmark - Bruce and Jens led
the Regional Modelling Chapter in AR4
Dr Linda Mearns, NCAR, Boulder, Co, USA
Dr Tim Carter, Finnish Environment Centre, SYKE, Helsinki, Finland - Linda and Tim are
well known climate impact scientists
Prof Chris Kilsby, University of Newcastle, UK - works on impacts, especially in the
water sector, so floods, droughts and water resources. Done consultancy work in the West
Bank
Prof Rob Wilby, University of Loughborough, UK - similar to Chris and has done
consultancy work in Morocco and Yemen.
Cheers
Phil

Dear Phil (Abrahams)

I am copying this message to Prof. Phil Jones from the Climate Research Unit at UEA who
will drafting some text on the climate science element of our research programme. He was
on your original list of people that might serve as
members of the editorial board for the annual reviews.

Phil (Jones) - see below. Could you send on some suggestions of climate scientists to
serve on the board?

Thanks and best wishes

Thank you all for these comments. As you see, I have incorporated them into a document
which Elizabeth will work on next week (when Im absent on vacation) as part of the CABI
contribution which is to say the version you see here probably will not be the version
you see sent from her next week (not least because of its length). However, I am still
missing names on the science: Kevin. My apologies if youve sent these already but could
you please forward any proposed names to Elizabeth Dodsworth?

Best wishes

Peter

Thanks.

In terms of names who would be appropriate on adaptation etc (I think a few UEA names
would be good to include):

Barry Smit University Guelph
Sam Fankhauser (LSE and UK Climate Change Committee)
Richard Klein (SEI)
Ian Burton (Environment Canada)
Ian Noble World Bank
Neil Leary (Dickinson College and former START and AIACC project)
Coleen Vogel (Univ Wits)
Tony Nyong (African Development Bank)
Victor Cruz (University Philippines)
Bruce Capmbell Climate Change Challenge CGIAR etc maybe in another category
Daniel Murdiyarso CIFOR Indonesia
Tao Wang now with WWF China

Hope these help stuimulate thoughts


Neil

Dear Phil

Thanks for this. I am copying to other colleagues at UEA that are part of the bid to
suggest names to you (which I will also do of course). One way would be to aim for a mix
of specialists across each of the themes that the 'Climate Exchange' (CCDKN) will focus
on (i) climate science (of particular importance for developing countries) (ii) low
carbon development (iii) adaptation and (iv) international policy for development.

As I mentioned at the meeting in London, one way of ensuring synergy across the research
and this annual review will be to summarise latest research in these areas, rather than
duplicate what the IPCC and other do.

Assuming you agree with this, can I invite colleagues to submit a few names under these
headings? Kevin on the science, Neil and Kate on adaptation. I'll send some on low
carbon development and international policy.

Best wishes

Peter

Subject: Annual review
Peter

Im tasked with considering how we manage the outputs of the Annual Review and will be
recommending that a small external Editorial Board is responsible for QA and
identification of authors to be commissioned to write reviews of key papers/findings
etc. The EB will have to be a mix of eminent research, social and policy experts and can
of course, at least in part, be drawn from some of the consortium (especially UEA)
staff. Meanwhile, Ive been Googling for resources that rank scientists in terms of their
climate science citations and/or absolute outputs as potential candidates to approach
for an EB. The site Ive come across at [16]UToronto may not be valid, so are there sites
doing this you can also recommend?

Are the names below, from the UToronto list known to you and worth approaching as a
lined-up EB member? Ive taken an arbitrary selection of names from key institutes
(excluding the rival Hadley Centre) and included names lower down the rankings who could
be put forward as representing some Southern science)

Ranking: 1 Jean Jouzel, CNRS France Ice core data
2 Kevin Trenberth, NCAR, US Decadal variance
3 Joseph Berry, Carnegie, US Plant physiology
5 James Hurrell, NCAR, US NAO
8 Philip Jones, UEA Surface temperature
trends
22 Martin Heimann, MPI Germany Carbon cycle
35 Robert Dickinson, GIT, US Biogeochem Cycles
41 Navin Ramankutty*, McGill, Can Biosphere modelling (*India)
57 Filippo Giorgi, Abdul Salam, Italy Regional modelling
63 Mario Molina*, Scripps US Ozone loss (*Nobel winner,
Mexico)
77 Andre Berger, Louvain, Bel Orbital forcings
79 Venkatachalam Ramaswany, NOAA US
