Subject: Proposed TGCIA meeting: 30th Mayto 1st June, Amsterdam
Date: Tue, 27 Feb 2001 08:32:21 -0500 (EST)
A proposed date/place for the next TGCIA meeting is: 9.00 on Wednesday 30th
May to 14.00 on Friday 1st June at Shell International Bldg, Amsterdam. Rob
Swart and colleagues at WGIII TSU have kindly agreed to be local hosts.
I suggest this date after consulting with 9 TGCIA members present at WGII
plenary at Geneva last week. The window is narrow between IPCC and SUBSTA
meetings (the latter is now almost certainly delayed until mid June).
Please put this date in your diary, but also let me know of any major
conflict with IPCC/UNFCC-type schedules.
Unless I hear to the contrary( *let us say by Monday 5th March*), the
proposal is that this dates stands .
This meeting is particularly because top of the agenda from our last meeting
is consideration of developing a 'one-stop-shop' for data and guidance for
scenario-based climate impacts assessment, which would lay the foundations
for compatible research for the next IPCC assessment (whatever form it may
take). We might well also consider what recommendations to make concerning
the form of the next assessment (a subject probably on the agenda of the IPCC
London Plenary in September).
More follows next week, assuming these dates hold, about agenda and
