US National Assessment of the Potential Consequences
of Climate Variability and Change
List of All Published Assessment Reports

 

Below are links to the workshop and assessment reports for individual regions and sectors covered by the Overview and Foundation reports.

 

 

Synthesis Reports

This Overview and the underlying Foundation document have been extensively reviewed. More than 300 scientific and technical experts have provided detailed comments on part or all of the report in two separate technical reviews. The report was reviewed at each stage for technical accuracy by the agencies of the US Global Change Research Program. The public also provided hundreds of helpful suggestions for clarification and modification during a 60-day public comment period. A panel of distinguished experts convened by the President's Committee of Advisors on Science and Technology has provided broad oversight, and monitored the authors' response to all reviews.
