Climate variability and change have diverse impacts on human populations, plants and animals. Many of these impacts have significant social and economic consequences. A key objective of climate research and model development at GFDL is to provide high quality, unbiased scientific input to resource management and climate adaptation decisions made nationally and globally on time-scales from seasons to decades.
