The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Navy are teaming up with scientists from the public, private, and academic sectors to design the next generation of models for predicting weather, ocean conditions, and regional climate change.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has launched seven regionally-located Climate Hubs to act as data repositories and offer the practical, science-based tools and strategies that agricultural producers need to adapt to climate change.
