Climate Change Science Program Collection

browse graphicGlobal Climate Change Impacts in the United States
The Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) Collection consists of publications and other resources produced between 2007 and 2009 by the CCSP with the intention of providing sound climate science for national and international consideration to mitigate potential global change risks. The CCSP worked with a number of United States Agencies to collect climate data and research, culminating in 21 separate assessments, discussing the current state of the climate as well as expected changes and impacts. The archive only maintains a subset of these assessments. In 2009, the Program name changed to the US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP). Since 2009, USGCRP has released updated assessments to address climate change and impacts the global ecosystem.
