The U.S. Global Change Research Act of 1990 established the U.S. Global Change Research
Program (USGCRP) to: "provide for the development and coordination of a comprehensive and
integrated United States research program which will assist the Nation and the world to
understand, assess, predict, and respond to human-induced and natural processes of global
change."

In support of the USGCRP, the U.S. Global Change Research Information Office (GCRIO)
serves as an information resource service for scientific and technical reports and data
useful in preventing, mitigating, and adapting to the effects of global change. The
service provides access to scientific and technical documents, results of scientific
research, information about applicable technologies, and information about accessing data
and information services.
GCRIO was established to provide information to individuals and organizations both within
and outside the United States.
