Federal Register Notice: "Technical Inputs and Assessment Capacity On Topics Related to 2013 U.S. National Climate Assessment" pdf | html

NOAA has issued a request for information, inviting the public to provide comments and expressions of interest in offering technical inputs or assessment capacity on topics related to the National Climate Assessment. While federal leadership will continue to play a significant role in the 2013 NCA, the National Climate Assessment Development Advisory Committee (NCADAC) recognizes and calls upon the increasing science capability and expertise across the United States to support its work. The diverse viewpoints of private industry, state and local governments, non-governmental organizations, professional societies, and impacted communities will ultimately contribute to a better informed and more useful NCA report. Expressions of interest are due by October 1, 2011, and final inputs are due by March 1, 2012. Please see the Federal Register Notice for a detailed timeline and more information [pdf | html]. Additional supplementary material includes "Potential Technical Inputs and Assessment Capacities and Suggested Best Practices" [pdf].

9/1 UPDATE: A Frequently Asked Questions document for the Requests for Information and Expressions of Interest is now available [pdf].
