Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society State of the Climate Report
Every year NCDC leads an international effort to develop the peer-reviewed State of the Climate Report, which has been an annual supplement to Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS) since its introduction (as “Climate Assessment”) in 1991. The report summarizes the global and regional climate of the preceding calendar year and places it into historical context. Recent editions cover more than 40 Essential Climate Variables, with input from more than 350 authors from nearly 50 nations.

Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States Report
The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) worked to create the Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States report. This report summarizes the science of climate change and the impacts of climate change on the United States, now and in the future, and serves as the most recent National assessment of the state of the climate.
