    This workshop is one of several efforts convened under the auspices of the U.S. Global Change Research Program that are intended to develop concepts for a modeling framework or architecture to couple Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability (IAV) models; Integrated Assessment (IA) models; and climate, Earth system, hydrology, land use, demography, and other models. To enable National Climate Assessment (NCA) authors to do the in-depth analysis necessary to make the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4) most useful, the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) provided author teams with an array of data tools and scenario by: 6.

    Hydrologic systems change in response to a variety of natural and human forces such as climate variability and change, water use and water infrastructure, and land cover change. In turn, changes in hydrologic systems impact socioeconomic, ecological, and climate systems at a number of scales, leading to a coevolution of these interlinked by: The Hydrologic Cycle and its Role in Arctic and Global Environmental Change: A Rationale and Strategy for Synthesis Study A Report from the Scientific Community to the National Science Foundation Ar ctic System Science Program NSF-ARCSS Hydrology Workshop Steering Committee Charles Vörösmarty (University of New Hampshire)File Size: 2MB.

    Climate Science Special Report Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4), Volume I This report is an authoritative assessment of the science of climate change, with a focus on the United States. It represents the first of two volumes of the Fourth National Climate Assessment, mandated by the Global Change Research Act of Summary. While most books examine only the classical aspects of hydrology, this three-volume set covers multiple aspects of hydrology. It examines new approaches, addresses growing concerns about hydrological and ecological connectivity, and considers the worldwide impact of climate change.

Conclusion 3: Research in hydrologic science has much to contribute to the USGCRP emphasis on global change impacts, especially on water resource management issues (e.g., performance of water delivery systems, decision-making under drought conditions, or monitoring of the quality and quantity of regional groundwater and surface water systems).

This first report contains a preliminary assessment of the hydrologic science content of the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP). Because this is a short and focused report, little effort is spent to reaffirm the established and successful elements of the USGCRP.

Moreover, along with carbon, water is one of the two major themes in the NRC report Global Environmental Change: Research Pathways for the Next Decade (NRC, a; the so-called Pathways report), and water now has been established as one of the key program elements of the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP, ).

This budget "crosscut" does not include the costs of many agency investments that are relevant and necessary to USGCRP's ability to address national objectives related to global.

It includes an overview of the USGCRP research enterprise and recent highlights that demonstrate progress on the – Strategic Plan. The report also spotlights progress in interagency research priority areas that intersect with the Climate Action Plan, such as climate predictions, drought and other hydrologic extremes, and actionable science.

The highlights in this Our Changing Planet report represent the broad spectrum of USGCRP activities. Important Information for Proposers.
