Climate Science


Central to understanding risk and developing effective climate mitigation, adaptation and resilience options is access to the latest and most authoritative information about likely future climate change and associated impacts. Through our engagement with the U.S. National Climate Assessment and our network of experts across higher education and government, here we provide resources that we know are of high quality and have been widely-used and recognized.

The Third U.S. National Climate Assessment is the most comprehensive and rigorous report on U.S. climate impacts and options to date. The entire report as well as highlights can be found at the official NCA page:
