New York State Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy

September 2005

Congress charged each state and territory with developing a wildlife action plan, in order to receive funds through the Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Program and the State Wildlife Grants Program. These proactive plans, known technically as “comprehensive wildlife conservation strategies,” assess the health of each state’s wildlife and habitats, identify the problems they face, and outline the actions that are needed to conserve them over the long term.

Community Climate System Model (CCSM)

The Community Climate System Model (CCSM) is a coupled climate model for simulating the climate system of the earth. Composed of four separate models simultaneously simulating the atmosphere of the earth, ocean, land surface and sea-ice, and one central coupler component, the CCSM allows researchers to conduct fundamental research into the past, present and future climate states of the earth.

Impact of Climate Change on Road Infrastructure

2004

This study assesses how climate change will affect Australia's road infrastructure on a region-by-region basis. The report downscales global climate projections to Australia's geographically diverse landscape. The report uses these regional climate impacts to determine how road infrastructure will be affected. Aside from the effects of heat on pavement performance and the threat of inundation due to sea-level rise, the report also emphasizes how climate change will affect human migration patterns.

Confronting Climate Change in the Gulf Coast Region: Prospects for Sustaining Our Ecological Heritage

October 2001

This report from the Union of Concerned Scientists and the Ecological Society of America explores the potential risks of climate change to Gulf Coast ecosystems in the context of pressures from land use. Its purpose is to help the public and policymakers understand the most likely ecological consequences of climate change in the region over the next 50 to 100 years, and prepare to safeguard the economy, culture, and natural heritage of the Gulf Coast.

NOAA Coastal Zone Enhancement Grants (Section 309)

NOAA's Coastal Zone Enhancement Program (CFDA Number: 11. 419) provides formula grants to state and territorial coastal zone management programs to help jurisdictions enhance and improve the management of coastal resources in nine "enhancement areas" (defined below).  Funds are provided directly to states that can use those grants to assess their coastal management programs and identify opportunities to enhance the effectiveness of their programs.  Grants are used to develop legal and policy changes and cannot be used for capital projects.
