Subject: RE: Annual review

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 ourselves writing for an audience we were not sure knew all this.

At the end there is a page of bullet points on what needs to be done for the provision of climate scenarios/services in the light of expected advances over the next few years (some by the time of AR5).

The bullet points are ordered roughly in time. What needs to be done earliest is first.


Cheers
Phil

Herewith one page on adaptation. Roger may well wish to amend, as we haven�t 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 I�m 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 you�ve sent these already but could you please forward any proposed names to Elizabeth Dodsworth?

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



I�m 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, I�ve 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 I�ve come across at UToronto<http://www.eecg.utoronto.ca/~prall/climate/AR4wg1_authors_table.html> 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? I�ve 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






All the best
