The 4th National Climate Assessment (NCA), released Nov 23rd, 2018, summarizes the impacts of climate change on the United States, now and in the future. A team of more than 300 experts guided by a Federal Steering Committee (composed of representatives from each of USGCRP's 13 member agencies) produced the report, which was extensively reviewed by the public and experts, including federal agencies and a panel of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The report is divided into regions and sectors. This presentation will explore the NCA process and key takeaway points with a focus on Alaska, including observed and projected climate changes on human heath and community wellbeing, as well as coastal and marine impacts.
