Climate Change in the Ozarks

The items in this bibliography address a wide range of climate change issues related to the Ozarks. Many of the products resulted from the Ozark Highlands Global Climate Change Research Program, administered by the National Park Service and U.S. Geological Survey from 1990-1998. This program was developed under the auspices of the US Global Change Research Program to address priority global climate change issues affecting Ozark natural resources. The scoping document for the research program is available here.
