Working Group I (WGI) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is pleased to announce that the First Order Draft of the WGI contribution to the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5), Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis will be available for Expert Review from 16 December 2011 to 10 February 2012. In order to review the First Order Draft, you are invited to submit a completed registration form provided below. For additional information, please see the Introduction to the Expert Review of IPCC Working Group I AR5 Draft Reports.
This registration process has been established by the WGI Bureau to facilitate an objective, open and transparent expert review. The WGI Expert Review follows the IPCC Procedures. The WGI Expert Review seeks wide participation of experts and aims for a range of views, expertise, and geographical balance. The WGI Bureau therefore invites all experts with expertise and/or publications in the specific areas covered by the WGI Report to assist in the IPCC assessment process by registering to review the chapter(s) of the WGI AR5 First Order Draft for which he/she is an expert. Prospective Expert Reviewers are asked to provide information on their scientific and technical expertise. Please refer to the WGI AR5 approved outline for additional detail on the content of the WGI AR5.
Each prospective Expert Reviewer is required to complete the registration form below. Prospective reviewers are asked to indicate the chapter(s) that they are interested in reviewing, provide supporting information on their relevant expertise, and confirm their expertise through a statement of self-declaration. Following completion of the registration process, each Expert Reviewer will receive an email from the WGI Technical Support Unit on 16 December 2011 with an individual username and password. Username and password will be specific to each expert and may not be shared.
Note that if you have no publications to list, you’ll probably be rejected. Publications in any form can be used as long as they are traceable and relevant to the chapter you check to review. I checked chapter 2 Observations: Atmosphere and Surface
