... Additionally, more comprehensive regional measurements of greenhouse gases would provide critical information about their local and regional source strengths. CLIMATE CHANGE SCIENCE Climate observations and modeling are becoming increasingly important for a wide segment of society including water resource managers, public health officials, agribusinesses, energy providers, forest managers, insurance companies, and city planners.
