This report is the Second National Climate Assessment. It summarizes the science of climate change and the impacts of climate change on the United States, now and in the future.
The 148-page Highlights book presents the major findings and selected highlights from Climate Change Impacts in the United States: The Third National Climate Assessment. The Highlights report is organized around the National Climate Assessment’s 12 Report Findings, which take an overarching view of the entire report and its 30 chapters.
This 20-page booklet provides a high-level compendium of Climate Change Impacts in the United States: The Third National Climate Assessment. The Overview covers the most important impacts at the national level but does not attempt to provide a comprehensive summary of the entire assessment.
This report, the First National Climate Assessment, includes analyses of the importance of climate variability and change for twenty regions around the United States, for five cross-cutting sectors, and for the United States as a whole. The DVD contains background information, public review drafts and final reports, citations, and high-resolution images.
The National Climate Assessment (NCA) Report Series summarizes regional, sectoral, and process-related workshops and discussions being held as part of the Third NCA process. This workshop focused on questions, issues, and methodological perspectives regarding the use of mathematical models for the NCA, as well as the complexities that arise when applying data and models to multiple spatial and temporal scales....
