Abstract:Climate variability and long term climate change are important factors in the economic and social well being of the United States. Public concerns about global climate change, rising sea level, changes in the frequency of hurricanes, severe winters or record hot summers emphasize that climate is a natural hazard. But climate is also a major natural resource and knowledge of its variability has become an important factor in resource planning, economic development, and human adaptability.
