CCSP 5.3 - Decision support experiments and evaluations using seasonal to interannual forecasts and observational data

The U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP), established in 2002 to coordinate climate and global change research conducted in the United States and to support decision-making on climate-related issues, is producing twenty-one synthesis and assessment reports that address its research, observation, and decision-support needs. This report, to be produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in coordination with other federal agencies, will focus on supporting adaptive management and planning for resources and physical infrastructure affected by climate variability and change, and building new partnerships with public and private sector entities that can benefit both research and decisions.
