Third Oregon Climate Assessment Report (OCAR3)

January 2017

The Third Oregon Climate Assessment Report (OCAR3) released in January 2017 summarizes current climate change science and impacts for Oregon, while building on the previous assessment reports from 2010 and 2013. The legislatively mandated report was produced by the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute at Oregon State University in response to Oregon House Bill 3543 - “Global Warming Actions” - which requires a bi-annual assessment to the Legislative Assembly and Governor by the Research Institute with the likely effects of climate change on the state.
