Climate model results provide the basis for important components of IPCC assessments, including the understanding of climate change and the projections of future climate change and related impacts.The IPCC's Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) relies heavily on the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, Phase 5 (CMIP5), a collaborative climate modelling process coordinated by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).
The reference snapshot is also based on the status of the CMIP5 data archive as of March 15, 2013.
The Fact Sheet on CMIP5 data provided at the IPCC Data Distribution Centre gives additional information on these two data snapshots.
Hop GLKD females can lay eggs at the same rate as wild type counterparts but the eggs do not hatch into larvae.
Hop GLKD leads to the accumulation of γ-H2Av foci in the germline indicating increased DNA damage in the ovary.
The CMIP5 archive has evolved through and beyond the IPCC 5th Assessment process, with modelling groups eager to contribute their best available data to the research community.
