Scientific Literature Reviews Archive

NOTICE: As of September 1, 2014, this website will no longer post weekly summaries of new scientific research articles. Such postings, and more, can be found at the CO2 Science website,, which is managed by the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, one of the three main supporting organizations of the NIPCC.

We encourage you to visit CO2 Science regularly, as new material is posted there nearly every weekday and archived in a much more comprehensive Subject Index. Otherwise, click on the links below to access reviews of the scientific literature, by topic, that have been published by the NIPCC since its 2009 report. To access reviews by date, click here.
