Biographical / Historical

The NCAR Climate and Weather Impact Assessment Science Program focused on critical scientific gaps in the weather and climate arenas that have proved particularly challenging for decision-makers and scientists alike, including characterizing uncertainty, extreme weather and climate events, and the role of climate in human health. This collection contains program documents as well as documents and presentations from the Initiative Review Meeting on August 3, 2004.

The collection is arranged in two series based on the order of the subdivisions provided on the program homepage, "Program Documents" and "2004 Review Documents."
