Climate Extremes and Their Implications for Impact and Risk Assessment describes challenges, opportunities and methodologies for the analysis of the impacts of climate extremes across various sectors to support their impact and risk assessment.
It thereby also facilitates cross-sectoral and cross-disciplinary discussions and exchange among. Impacts from climate change are happening now. These impacts extend well beyond an increase in temperature, affecting ecosystems and communities in the United States and around the world.
Things that we depend upon and value — water, energy, transportation, wildlife, agriculture, ecosystems, and human health — are experiencing the effects. Arctic Climate Impact Assessment was prepared by an international team of over scientists, experts, and knowledgeable members of indigenous communities, and is the most comprehensive volume on Arctic climate change available.
