GeoRoundup: the highlights of EGU Journals published during February!

Each month we feature specific Divisions of EGU and during the monthly GeoRoundup we put the journals that publish science from those Divisions at the top of the Highlights roundup. For February, the Divisions we are featuring are: Geodesy (G), and Stratigraphy, Sedimentology and Palaeontology (SSP). They are served by the journals: Geoscientific Model Development (GMD) and Solid Earth (SE).

Featured highlights

Geoscientific Model Development:

The IPCC Sixth Assessment Report WGIII climate assessment of mitigation pathways: from emissions to global temperatures – 22 February 2023

Assessing hundreds or thousands of emission scenarios in terms of their global mean temperature implications requires standardised procedures of infilling, harmonisation, and probabilistic temperature assessments. We here present the open-source “climate-assessment” workflow that was used in the IPCC AR6 Working Group III report. The paper provides key insight for anyone wishing to understand the assessment of climate outcomes of mitigation pathways in the context of the Paris Agreement.
