Official launch of the Interactive Atlas of the Working Group I Sixth Assessment Report

The novel AR6 Working Group I Interactive Atlas allows flexible spatial and temporal analysis of both data-driven climate change information and assessment findings in the report. It includes two components:

  • The Regional Information component provides access to climate change information (variables and derived indices) from the main datasets used in the report.
  • The Regional Synthesis component allows the exploration of key synthesized assessments building on multiple lines of evidence across the Working Group I reference regions (This was not yet available at the WGI AR6 launch on August 9).

The Interactive Atlas has been updated aligning with the final version of the Summary for Policy Makers (SPM) following the approval process, implementing also copy editing and a few errata fixes. This event was the official release of the WGI Interactive Atlas, describing the updates implemented and describing the new regional synthesis component.
