NC CSC McNeeley Presents on National Climate Assessment

The U.S. National Climate Assessment (NCA) is a collaborative report mandated by the Global Change Research Act of 1990. This assessment analyzes effects of climate change throughout all sectors of the nation including ecosystems, land and water use, agriculture, human health, urban and rural communities, tribes, and energy among others in order to plan for adaption, mitigation and solutions for the future. The draft 2013 NCA report is now open for public comments until April 12th.

North Central Climate Science Center’s Dr. Shannon McNeeley presented draft findings from the Great Plains region and Adaption chapters of the National Climate Assessment at the Great Plains Region NCA town hall in Lincoln Nebraska on Feb 4. NCCSC University Director, Dr. Dennis Ojima along with Dr. McNeeley have been authoring and coordinating sections of the NCA report and will continue to help with assessment and coordination via the NCCSC.
