Land use, land cover, and forests in a changing climate: Findings from 4th National Climate Assessment
The Nation’s authoritative assessment of climate impacts, the Fourth National Climate Assessment Vol. II: Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States (NCA4 Vol. II) was released in November 2018. This presentation will address the impacts of climate change on land cover and land-use change and forests in the United States. Presenters will discuss the assessment’s findings, including adaptation actions, what we’ve learned since the previous assessment, and what we hope to understand better in the future.
