NOAA Climate.gov provides science and information for a climate-smart nation. Americans' health, security, and economic well-being are closely linked to climate and weather. People want and need information to help them make decisions on how to manage climate-related risks and opportunities they face.
ASCH is dedicated to promoting research, exchanging knowledge and fostering greater awareness and responsiveness to the health issues of circumpolar people. The Society is a charter member of the International Union for Circumpolar Health (IUCH) and actively involved with the planning and organizing of the International Congress for Circumpolar Health (ICCH) held every three years.
BECS was formed in 1989 to help guide research in the United States on the interactions between human activity and global environmental change. Working in conjunction with the National Research Council's Committee on Global Change Research, the committee serves as a source of broad scientific expertise and judgment for setting agendas for research on human-environment interactions.
