An overview of CMIP5 and the experiment design
The fifth phase of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) will produce a state-of-the- art multimodel dataset designed to advance our knowledge of climate variability and climate change.…
Climate Change 2021—The Physical Science Basis
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the United Nations body responsible for assessing the science related to climate change. The Sixth Report from IPCC Working Group 1 published…
The next generation of scenarios for climate change research and assessment
A new process for creating plausible scenarios to investigate some of the most challenging and important questions about climate change confronting the global community is described.
THE WCRP CMIP3 Multimodel Dataset: A New Era in Climate Change Research
A coordinated set of global coupled climate model [atmosphere–ocean general circulation model (AOGCM)] experiments for twentieth- and twenty-first-century climate, as well as several climate change…
Overview of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6) experimental design and organization
The background and rationale for the new structure of CMIP is presented, a detailed description of the DECK and CMIP6 historical simulations are provided, and a brief introduction to the 21 CMIP6-Endorsed MIPs are included.

Results of observational studies suggest that in many areas that have been analyzed, changes in total precipitation are amplified at the tails, and changes in some temperature extremes have been observed.
More Intense, More Frequent, and Longer Lasting Heat Waves in the 21st Century
Observations and the model show that present-day heat waves over Europe and North America coincide with a specific atmospheric circulation pattern that is intensified by ongoing increases in greenhouse gases, indicating that it will produce more severe heat waves in those regions in the future.
The Scenario Model Intercomparison Project (ScenarioMIP) for CMIP6
Abstract. Projections of future climate change play a fundamental role in improving understanding of the climate system as well as characterizing societal risks and response options. The Scenario…
