ESSIC professor Ross Salawitch and University of Maryland (UMD) colleagues Tim Canty and Austin Hope contributed to the new Climate Science Special Report (CSSR), released by the U.S. Global Change Research Program on Nov. 3. The report, which is the most comprehensive investigation of climate science to date, concludes that human activity is the likely cause of observed warming since the mid-20th century. The CSSR will also serve as the scientific foundation of the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4) expected to be released in late 2018. Canty directs the undergraduate and graduate programs in the UMD Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science (AOSC) and Austin Hope is a graduate student in the department. Salawitch also has joint appointments in AOSC and UMD’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
