The State of California has been supporting regional climate change research for more than a decade. These studies have complemented research at the national level and have been designed to inform climate policy deliberations and actions in California. This Research Catalog provides basic information about past and ongoing climate change related studies that state agencies have conducted or commissioned since the early 2000s. The purpose of this catalog is to document California’s research efforts and to facilitate the exchange of information.

Published in 2003, this report is a PIER EA (Environmental Area) Climate Change RD&D plan inclusive of a five year vision. Drawn primarily from climate change research roadmaps (regional, water, ecological impacts, carbon sequestration, and economics of climate change mitigation and adaption), the report describes PIER's statewide climate change research program.
