The Nation's authoritative assessment of climate impacts, the Fourth National Climate Assessment Vol. II: Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States (NCA4 Vol. II) was released in November 2018. This presentation will address the potential for reduction or avoidance of future risk through adaptation efforts and emissions mitigation.


Roger S. Pulwarty is Senior Scientist at NOAA's Physical Sciences Division in Boulder, Colorado. Roger's publications focus on weather, water, climate extremes and risk management in the US, Latin America and the Caribbean. He also helped develop and lead programs linking science and services, including the National Integrated Drought Information System, the Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments, and the World Meteorological Organization Climate Services Information System. Roger has been a convening lead author on the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction and the IPCC Working Group II on Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability. He is the co-editor of “Hurricanes: Climate and Socio-economic Impacts” (Springer, reissued in paperback 2012), and “Drought and Water Crises” (CRC Press, 2017).

Jeremy Martinich is a climate scientist with EPA's Climate Change Division. He coordinates the Climate Change Impacts and Risk Analysis (CIRA) project, a multi-team modeling project to estimate and monetize the risks of climate change to U.S. sectors.
