Dec. 19, 2012 - PRLog -- A new LMI report authored by climate change expert Rachael Jonassen and national security expert Jeremey Alcorn highlights areas where the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) can collaborate with the national security community to adapt to the expected impacts of a changing climate. The independent report, titled “Climate: Opportunities for Improving Engagement Between NOAA and the US National Security Community,” identifies six areas where the nation’s security interests can be augmented by work already being performed through leading atmospheric science initiatives.

The report was funded by the independent LMI Research Institute (http://www.lmi.org/About-LMI/LMI-Research-Institute-(1)/Overview) and stresses areas of opportunity that could allow NOAA to promote national security readiness, while meeting NOAA’s mission to “understand and predict changes in climate.” These areas include the following:

Prepare and respond to climate variability and adapt to climate change.
Develop climate change predictions endorsed by the federal government.
Support national security with NOAA climate products.
Move from data access to data application.
Sustain cooperation.
Consider emerging product areas.

Jonassen and Alcorn are widely recognized as some of the foremost thinkers on issues relating to climate change and national security. Both contributed to LMI’s acclaimed book Climate Change: What You Can Do Now (http://www.lmi.org/climatechangebook), released in 2012 to provide functional managers in the public and private sectors with a better understanding of how climate change will impact their operations, along with opportunities that exist for immediate action.
