Arctic climate impact assessment−Scientific report

The ACIA Scientific Report (2005) is the first comprehensive, integrated assessment of climate change and ultraviolet (UV) radiation across the entire Arctic region. The intended audience is the international scientific community, including researchers and directors of research programs. See here a video from the C-Span Video Library (November 8, 2004) where scientists talk to reporters at the National Press Club about the ACIA report [1:42:04 min]. Read a review of the report by New York Times climate writer Andrew Revkin. See also PBS' review, which includes a link to a teacher resource.
