Reanalysis of Historical Climate Data for Key Atmospheric Features : Implications for Attribution of Causes of Observed Change (SAP 1.3)
A primary objective of the U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) is to provide the best possible scientific information to support public discussion, and government and private sector decision making on key climate-related issues. To help meet this objective, the CCSP has identified 21 Synthesis and Assessment Products (SAPs) that address its highest priority research, observational, and decision-support needs. This Product, CCSP SAP 1.3, is one of three products developed to address the first goal of the CCSP Strategic Plan: Improve knowledge of the Earth's past and present climate and environment, including its natural variability, and improve understanding of the causes of observed variability and change. This Product assesses present capabilities to describe key features of climate from the mid-twentieth century to the present through the scientific method of reanalysis. It also assesses current understanding of the causes of observed climate variability and changes over the North American region during this same period.
