The U.S. Global Change Research Program considers climate indicators, which are “observations or calculations that can be used to track conditions and trends” to be “an important part of the vision for the sustained National Climate Assessment (NCA).” To this end, the USGCRP has spent several years developing this part of the vision, by identifying and selecting indicators, as well as recognizing indicator platforms operated by its constituent agencies. This presentation will detail some of the logistical aspects of managing these indicators, including considerations for transparency, interoperability, timeliness and data management. It will also highight the role of Indicators as a service to the sustained NCA.
