This meeting will be held February 1-3, 2016.

A closed meeting will take place on February 4, 2016.

The "International Detection and Attribution Group" (IDAG) is a group of specialists on climate change detection and attribution, who have been collaborating on assessing and reducing uncertainties in the estimates of climate change since 1995 and who have made substantial contributions to the IPCC process and the US CCSP activities.

In 2005 the IDAG group published a review paper (IDAG, 2005), which reported further evidence and open questions on the detection of climate change since the TAR. Group members were heavily involved in the Fourth and Fifth Assessment, Working Group 1 activities, several serving as Coordinating, Review, or Lead Authors. Nearly all other group members were contributing authors to the IPCC effort. Group members were also involved with the CCSP effort as Coordinating Lead authors, and in serving on the NRC review panel. Several group members were Lead Authors for CCSP SAP 3.3 (extreme events) and CCSP SAP1.3 (reanalyses and attribution of recent climate change). The group as a whole and individually has contributed substantially to all IPCC Assessment reports since the Second Assessment Report.
