This section provides several resources that introduce the topic of climate change and discuss some of its implications for natural resource managers.

For answers to specific questions on climate science, how climate changes affect ecosystems, or how to think about resource management under climate change, the FAQ’s may be a good place to start.
Management Options lays out a vision of how to think about natural resource management in the context of climate change, and is a great introduction to many of the other resources offered on the CCRC.
For those who simply need to access Climate Data, this page will point you towards the organizations and websites that are responsible for compiling, updating, and providing climate data to the public. It also shares some introductory information on climate projections and the use of downscaled climate data.
