50 Scientific Inputs to Managing Natural Resources and the Environment Under a Changing Climate: Observations to Models to Decisions

Oral Session
Agriculture and Natural Resources Science for Climate Variability and Change: Transformational Advancements in Research, Education and Extension Development of next-generation Earth System Models that include coupled and interactive representations of ecosystems, agricultural working lands and forests, to produce comprehensive, reliable global and regional predictions of decadal climate variability and change through advanced understanding of the coupled interactive physical, chemical, biological and human processes that drive the climate system. Effectively translate model results and associated uncertainties into the scientific basis for well-informed human adaptation to and management decisions for climate change.
