NOAA Climate and Global Change Program
Project DescriptionThe Climate and Global Change Program represents a National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) contribution to evolving
national and international programs designed to improve our ability to
observe, understand, predict, and respond to changes in the global
environment. This program builds on NOAA's mission requirements and
long-standing capabilities in global change research and
prediction. The NOAA Program is a key contributing element of the
U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), which is coordinated by
the interagency Committee on Environmental and Natural
Resources. NOAA's program is designed to complement other agencies'
contributions to that national effort.
