The National Climate Assessment (NCA) is produced every four years by the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP). The NCA aims to integrate new information on climate science into the context of larger social, ecological, and policy systems. It will provide an updated report of climate change impacts and vulnerability, evaluate the effectiveness of mitigation and adaptation activities, and identify knowledge gaps. Oceans and Marine Resources has been identified as one of the national-level overview chapters to be included in the 2018 national report. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a brief background on the NCA, present the tentative key findings/outline, and seek public feedback. During this webinar, the audience can provide feedback on the major issues facing the oceans and the effects these will have on the United States.
