The effects of climate change on agriculture, land resources, water resources, and biodiversity in the United States by Peter Backlund( )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report provides an assessment of the effects of climate change on U.S. agriculture, land resources, and biodiversity. It is one of a series of 21 Synthesis and Assessment Products (SAP) that are being produced under the auspices of the U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP)."--Preface
Coastal sensitivity to sea-level rise : a focus on the mid-Atlantic Region( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of 21 climate change synthesis and assessment products commissioned by the U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP), this report examines the effects of sea level rise, impacts on society, and opportunities to prepare for those consequences, focusing on the eight coastal states from New York to North Carolina. Using scientific literature and policy documents, the report describes potential changes to barrier

Climate literacy : the essential principles of climate sciences : a guide for individuals and communities by Climate Change Science Program (U.S.)( )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[The report] presents information that is deemed important for individuals and communities to know and understand about Earth's climate, impacts of climate change, and approaches to adaptation or mitigation. Principles in the guide can serve as discussion starters or launching points for scientific inquiry. The guide aims to promote greater climate science literacy by providing this educational framework of principles and concepts. The guide can also serve educators who teach climate science as a way to meet content standards in their science curricula

Preliminary review of adaptation options for climate-sensitive ecosystems and resources : final report( )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of SAP 4.4 is to provide useful information on the state of knowledge regarding adaptation options for key, representative ecosystems and resources that may be sensitive to climate variability and change. As its title suggests, this report is a preliminary review, defined as 'the process of collecting and reviewing available information about known or potential adaptation options.' The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) notes that there are few demonstrated examples of ecosystem-focused adaptation options (see IPCC Fourth Assessment Report, 17.4.2.1 and 4.6.2). Thus, the authors of this SAP found it necessary to examine adaptation options in the context of a desired ecosystem condition or natural resource management goal, as set forth by the resource management entity. Therefore, this report explores potential adaptation options that could be used by natural resource managers within the context of the legislative and administrative mandates of the six systems examined: National Forests, National Parks, National Wildlife Refuges, Wild and Scenic Rivers, National Estuaries, and Marine Protected Areas. Case studies throughout this report examine in greater detail some of the issues and challenges associated with implementation of adaptation options, but are not intended to be geographically comprehensive or representative of the full breadth of ecosystems that exist or adaptation options that are available."

Scientific assessment of the effects of global change on the United States : a report of the Committee on Environment and Natural Resources, National Science and Technology Council( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past several years, our understanding of global environmental change and our ability to estimate its future effects has improved significantly. In order to summarize the key conclusions of this research, the U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) has undertaken a national scale "Scientific Assessment of the Effects of Global Change on the United States." The conclusions in this assessment build on the vast body of observations, modeling, decision-support, and other types of activities conducted under the auspices of CCSP. It draws on findings from previous assessments of the science, including reports and products by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, (IPCC), CCSP, and others. Together with CCSP's 21 Synthesis and Assessment Products, this is arguably the most comprehensive assessment to date of the effects of global change, and especially the climate, on the United States
