This technical report is based on scientific contributions from both CSIRO1 and the Bureau of Meteorology. It is not intended to be comprehensive in terms of depth or breadth. Rather it is a snapshot of the “state of the science” mainly from the perspective of CAWCR scientific expertise based on peer-reviewed literature. The issues covered relate mainly (but not exclusively) to the scope of Working Group One (WGI) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (http://www.ipcc.ch/); i.e. an assessment of the physical and scientific aspects of the climate system and climate change. We are particularly grateful to these contributors for undertaking this significant effort within a very tight timeline.
