Data Sources
Climate change trends and the observable phenomena they generate (see Glossary) were derived from the U.S. National Climate Assessment (2014) and NPS unit-specific reports developed by the NPS Climate Change Response Program. The impacts in the table were identified through a combination of literature review and consultation with cultural resource management specialists. An initial draft table was compiled from literature review (Sabbioni et al. 2012 [16], Colette (ed.) 2007 [20])., which NPS experts then reviewed and expanded based on their field of expertise- Archeology, Cultural Landscapes, Ethnographic Resources, Museum Collections, Historic Buildings and Structures. Each resource section was developed by at least three experts in each field. Representatives from each field then reviewed the full table.
