Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) was established by Presidential initiative in and mandated by Congress in the Global Change Research Act (GCRA) of Its mandate is to develop and coordinate “a comprehensive and integrated United States research program which will assist the Nation and the world to understand, assess, predict, and respond to human-induced and.

The Global Change Monitoring Portal (GCMP) is a project of the DOI Southeast Climate Science Center and aims to support the efforts of multiple federal, state, and other organizations by providing a centralized, comprehensive catalog of observational networks associated with aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems in the southeastern United States.

New Publications by USGS Authors Grade and tonnage model for tungsten skarn deposits— updateScientific Investigations Report   For several years since the global push to develop mass-scale Electric Vehicles, the element Lithium has come intofocus as a strategic metal.

Demand is enormous in China, in the EU and in the USA at present, and securing control over lithium supplies is already developing its own geopolitics not unlike that for the control of oil. Global climate change is important in considerations of integrated coastal management in the Gulf of Mexico.

This is true for a number of reasons. Climate in the Gulf spans the range from tropical to the lower part of the temperate zone. Thus, as climate warms, the tropical temperate interface, which is currently mostly offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, will increasingly move over the coastal.

and life as a result of climate change Concerted global action is needed to enable developing countries to adapt to the effects of climate change that are happening now and will worsen in the future.

The urgency for adaptation is highlighted by projections from the three reports produced by the IPCC in (IPCC ). Trump officials deleting mentions of ‘climate change’ from U.S. Geological Survey press releases.

By Scott Waldman, E&E News Jul. 8,AM. Originally published by. Research is also shedding light on actions that might be taken to limit the magnitude of climate change and adapt to its impacts.

Climate Change: Evidence, Impacts, and Choices is intended to help people understand what is known about climate change. First, it lays out the evidence that human activities, especially the burning of fossil fuels.

As Sectoral Coordinator for the National Climate Assessment, USGS liaison to USGCRP, and Senior Staff Scientist at USGCRP, Susan Aragon-Long coordinates many of the sectors and cross-cutting topics in the NCA and the new Indicators Working to joining the NCA team, Susan worked as the Chief of Staff for the Climate and Land Use Mission Area at USGS Headquarters.

These data may be used as the source of updates to the seamless layers of the 3D Elevation Program, which serves as the elevation layer of the National Map. These data can be used by scientists and resource managers for global change research, hydrologic modeling, resource monitoring, mapping and visualization, and many other applications.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), a nonregulatory Federal science agency with national scope and responsibilities, is uniquely positioned to serve the Nation’s needs in understanding and responding to global change, which includes changes in climate; sea level; land use and land cover; ecosystems; and the global water, carbon, and nitrogen : U.S.

Department of the Interior. Climate change - Climate change - Abrupt climate changes in Earth history: An important new area of research, abrupt climate change, has developed since the s. This research has been inspired by the discovery, in the ice core records of Greenland and Antarctica, of evidence for abrupt shifts in regional and global climates of the past.

The United States Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) coordinates and integrates federal research on changes in the global environment and their implications for program began as a presidential initiative in and was codified by Congress through the Global Change Research Act of (P.L.

), which called for "a comprehensive and integrated United States research. When NASA's Perseverance rover lands on Mars next year, it will be equipped with some of the most precise maps of Mars ever created, courtesy of the USGS Astrogeology Science Center. Not only are.

USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Exit - Sincethe SARE grants and education program has advanced agricultural innovation that promotes profitability, stewardship of the land, air and water, and quality of life for farmers, ranchers and their communities.

USGS - Climate and Land Use Change Mission Area -The USGS is a science organization that provides impartial. Despite climate-change deniers, in the Trump administration in particular, in the aftermath of the Paris Agreement, climate change is understood increasingly as part of a planetary transformation that has been set in motion by industrial activity and the rise of a global fossil-fuel-powered economy.

But this is about more than just climate change. This book addresses current monitoring and understanding of solar influences on both the climate system and the ozone layer and prioritizes the research effort that will be needed to provide a sound scientific basis for policymaking related to global change issues.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS, formerly simply Geological Survey) is a scientific agency of the United States scientists of the USGS study the landscape of the United States, its natural resources, and the natural hazards that threaten it.

The organization has four major science disciplines, concerning biology, geography, geology, and hydrology. This page provides access to select relevant resources generated or sponsored by the U.S.

Government and other authoritative scientific bodies, and thereby fulfills the requirement for a Global Change Research Information Office as mandated by the Global Change Research Act of   Geological research is typically well funded, bringing research dollars as well as recognition to the university.

Students and the public are looking to basic research in the sciences relevant to global change for information, research, and leadership. If ever there was a time to fortify the geological sciences, this is it.

Global environmental change: research pathways for the next decade / Committee on Global Change Research, Board on Sustainable Development, Policy Division, National Research Council. Includes bibliographical references and index. Global Warming is an increase in Earth's average surface temperature, due mostly to the release of greenhouse gases (GHGs) such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), water vapour, Nitrous oxide.

Summarizing the science, Ingram and USGS researcher Michael Dettinger deliver the dire news: A flood comparable to—and sometimes much. In addition, the panel reviewed the ecosystems chapter of the NRC report Global Environmental Change: Research Pathways for the Next Decade (NRC a, known as the Pathways report).

The USGCRP is an interagency program established in and codified by the Global Change Research Act of (PL ). For example, a mean global warming of 3 C will change climates sufficiently so that % of vascular plants in North America will no longer occur within the appropriate climate "envelope." This will require that such plants will have to adapt to the change, move .Global climate change - rapid, substantial and human induced - may have radical consequences for life on earth.

The problem is a complex one, however, demanding a multi-disciplinary approach. A simple cost-benefit analysis cannot capture the essentials, nor can the issue be reduced to an emissions reduction game, as the Kyoto process tries to do.
