The United States Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) has developed, along with many interagency collaborators, a platform that highlights key climate information that supports the National Climate Assessment. NEMAC works with the Indicators team to develop static and dynamic graphics that help communicate key climate messages.
Landscape dynamics assessment tool (LanDAT)
Landscape resilience can be thought of as a landscape’s capacity to maintain its defining characteristics and functions, even while landscape change is ongoing. To assist planners and resource managers in understanding this ongoing change and allow them to incorporate landscape resilience and vulnerability into planning, NEMAC is supporting the U.S. Forest Service Eastern Forest Environmental Threat Assessment Center in the delivery of the Landscape Dynamics Assessment Tool (LanDAT), a tool to assess landscape dynamics based on satellite-observed vegetation change.
As part of the National Climate Assessment (NCA), NEMAC is partnering with NOAA to create a tool to help NCA authors create figures for their respective chapters.
