An Investment in Science for the Nation's Future

A Report by the Subcommittee on Global Change Research, Committee on Environment and Natural Resources of the National Science and Technology Council

A Supplement to the President's Fiscal Year 1998 Budget


Abstract

Our Changing Planet: The FY 1998 Global Change Research Program  is a report to Congress supplementing the President's FY98 budget, pursuant to the Global Change Research Act of 1990. The report describes the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP); reviews progress in global change research over the past decade; presents highlights of recent and current research on key global change environmental science issues; outlines integrative activities and perspectives supported by the USGCRP; discusses new global change research challenges in the coming decade; and provides a detailed view of the FY98 USGCRP budget, including FY98 program components and program highlights by agency. Achieving the goals and objectives of this program will require continued strong support for the scientific research needed in order to improve understanding of how human activities are affecting the global environment, as well as how natural and human-induced change is affecting society.
