The National Climate Assessment (NCA) assesses the science of climate change and variability and its impacts across the United States, now and throughout this century. The newest volume focuses on the impacts and risks faced by the United States in the face of global climate change across 16 national topic chapters (water, air quality, transportation, health, coastal impacts, etc.) and 10 regional chapters.
