The 2003 Strategic Plan for the United States Climate Change Science Program identified 21 synthesis and assessment products that represent principal responses to the top-priority research, observation, and decision support needs of society. The Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) Synthesis and Assessment Product 4.3 (SAP 4.3) will address the effects of climate change on agriculture, land resources, water resources, and biodiversity. These areas are addressed under the ecosystems, land use, and water research elements of the CCSP. One of the primary goals of these research elements is to enhance understanding and ability to estimate effects of future climate change on these systems and resources. [Full Prospectus]
