Now available! Third National Climate Assessment for the United States

U.S. National Climate Assessment

On May 6, 2014, the Obama Administration unveiled the Third U.S. National Climate Assessment. The report, a key deliverable of President Obama's Climate Action Plan, confirms that climate change is affecting Americans in every region of the U.S. and key sectors of the national economy. The assessment was developed over three years by a team of over 300 climate scientists and experts, including from NOAA Research, and informed by inputs gathered through more than 70 technical workshops and stakeholder listening sessions held across the country.

NOAA Research's Sandy Supplemental Program Overview

Sandy struck the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast coasts with powerful winds, rain, and storm surges that caused unprecedented damages in some of the nation’s most populous areas. The communities hit by Sandy will be rebuilding and recovering for years to come. This document provides more details on OAR's $74.7 million investment across four areas, approximately half of which will support extramural investigators.

Upcoming OAR Laboratory Reviews

OAR periodically conducts laboratory science reviews to evaluate the quality, relevance, and performance of research conducted within each OAR laboratory and to provide strategic advice to the laboratory.

Next Lab Review will be the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, scheduled to be held May 20 - 22, 2014.    If you would like to observe the public sessions on May 20 and May 21, webinar registration is available at the Review website. The Agenda is posted there as well.
