Fact Sheets

NOAA State Climate Summaries (FS-22-05)

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has created State Climate Summaries of observed and projected climate change (https://statesummaries.ncics.org). This fact sheet documents the climate variables covered on their website, model projection summaries, and limitations of models and data. The climate summaries may be useful to forest products companies as they work to understand the potential effects of climate on current and future operations, and to contextualize local climate conditions for various reporting purposes, such as Environment, Sustainability, and Governance (ESG) disclosures.
