The European Commission, DG XII, has published a report outlining the results of the "Anthropogenic Climate Change" project, a project financed under the Community's specific RTD programme in the field of Environment and Climate and managed by the Climate and Natural Hazards Unit (DGXII/D-2).

The aim of the project was to provide a better assessment and understanding of future climate change caused by the emission of anthropogenic greenhouse gases. The report describes the global coupled ocean-atmosphere models which have been developed, and the results achieved from the application of these models in simulating the effect of altered atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations on future climate.

These results - in particular those from coupled models including both greenhouse gases and anthropogenic aerosols - have been instrumental in influencing the conclusion, by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that there is a discernible human influence on the climate. Many uncertainties, however, still remain.
