The three earlier reports include: "The Physical Science Basis" (Feb. 07); "Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability" (April 07); and "Mitigation of Climate Change" (May 07).
The science related to climate change is vast and complex, said IPCC officials, and the IPCC has worked with scientists around the world to collect, assess and process the body of solid and up-to-date scientific literature. All this information is contained in the first three volumes of "Climate Change 2007"
The finalover and above what is included in the Summary for Policymakers in these three Reports.
