  5. 5. Report of the International Panel set up by the University of East Anglia to examine the research of the Climatic Research Unit. Introduction 1. The Panel was set up by the University in consultation with the Royal Society to assess the integrity of the research published by the Climatic Research Unit in the light of various external assertions. The Unit is a very small academic entity within the School of Environmental Sciences. It has three full time and one part time academic staff members and about a dozen research associates, PhD students and support staff. The essence of the criticism that the Panel was asked to address was that climatic data had been dishonestly selected, manipulated and/or presented to arrive at pre-determined conclusions that were not compatible with a fair interpretation of the original data. The members of the Panel are listed in Appendix A at the end of this report. The Indepen dent 2. The Panel was not concerned with the question of whether the conclusions of the published research were correct. Rather it was asked to come to a view on monsHouse of Com the integrity of the Unit’s research and whether as far as could be determined echnology the conclusions represented an honest and scientifically justified interpretation Climate Chan ge of the data. The Panel worked by examining representative publications byScience and T members of the Unit and subsequently by making two visits to the University and interviewing and questioning members of the Unit. Not all the panel wereCommittee present on both occasions but two members were present on both occasions to E -mail s Revi ew maintain continuity.

The Panel’s work began with a detailed reading of the published work. Every paper was read by a minimum of three Panel members at least one of whom Chair : Sir Muir Russell East Anglia was familiar with the general area to which the paper related. At least one of the other two was a generalist with no special climate science expertise but with experience of some of the general techniques and methods employed in the work.
