Mid-Atlantic Regional Assessment of Climate Change Impacts

 

Publication date: May 2, 2000

Guest Editors: Brent M. Yarnal, Laurence S. Kalkstein, Joel D. Scheraga


One important component of the United States National Assessment of the impacts of climate variation and change is the assessment of nearly twenty sub-national regions. CR SPECIAL 7 introduces the National Assessment and focuses on the Mid-Atlantic Regional Assessment-MARA. Key topics of MARA include positive and negative climate impacts on water, forests, ecosystems, agriculture, coastal zones, and human health. The assessment integrates science with substantial stakeholder participation. The findings of CR SPECIAL 7 are especially timely because of the upcoming Third Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
