May 21, 2018

From the University of Colorado in partnership with the National Park Service, this report describes how climate change and associated sea level rise and storm surge can affect coastal U. S. National Park infrastructure, facilities, and resources. This analysis provides sea level rise projections for 118 park units and storm surge projections for 79 of those parks - from which storm surge maps for each site are included. These results are intended to inform adaptation planning for coastal parks and resources managed by the National Park Service.

A global economic assessment of city policies to reduce climate change impacts

May 29, 2017

This report provides a quantitative assessment of the economic costs of the joint impacts of local and global climate change for all main cities around the world. The study was conducted by an international team of economists looking at the combined impact of global and local climate change on urban economies, with a focus on urban heat. Published in the journal Nature Climate Change, the analysis of 1,692 cities shows that the total economic costs of climate change for cities this century could be 2.
