Margolis authors part of Fourth National Climate Assessment chapter
NCA4, Vol II, Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States, released November 2018, assesses a range of potential climate change-related impacts, with an aim to help decision makers better identify risks that could be avoided or reduced.
The assessment follows Vol I, the Climate Science Special Report (CSSR), which was released in November 2017.
Together, these reports meet the requirements of the Global Change Research Act, which mandates a quadrennial assessment of our understanding of global change and its impacts on the United States.
For the Southwest Chapter (Chapter 25), Fellow Helene Margolis was lead author for the Health Key Message section.
The chapter was developed in collaboration with other chapter authors.
She is also one of three spokespersons for the Southwest Chapter.
