Includes natural changes (cyclic variability, volcanic eruptions, solar output) and human-caused changes (due to GHG emissions and land use changes)

This OSU webinar will provide an overview of how interested stakeholders can obtain information from NOAA’s climate service offices.

State of the Climate in 2013

On July 17, NOAA and the American Meteorological Society released the State of the Climate in 2013 report. A 24-year tradition encompassing the work of 425 authors from 57 countries, the report uses dozens of climate indicators to track patterns, changes, & trends of the global climate system.

In this short video, host Dr. Ryan interviews graduate student Amy Steiker at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research about her research, using isotopes of nitrous oxide, connecting human activity to greenhouse gas emissions.

The video offers a simple and easy-to-understand overview of climate change. It poses basic questions such as 'What is it?' and 'How will it effect us?' and effectively answers those questions.

UN Climate Change Learning Partnership Releases Learning Resources Guides on Climate Change Science

The UN Climate Change Learning Partnership released two resource guides to help people understand the science of climate change. The two guides provide a tour of the best & most relevant resources on climate change science.

This webinar will examine how variations in the tropical Pacific can affect high-latitude regions such as Alaska.
