Evaluating the Societal Impacts of Climate Change Research: A guidebook for natural and physical scientistsstrong>
Goal: We will create a guidebook that defines and provides examples of societal impacts from climate change research and methods for how to measure and document research impacts.
Aspirations for Impact: Given the gravity of current global warming, it is imperative that scientists understand how climate change research will have the most societal benefit and can communicate about those impacts to a range of audiences; this guidebook will provide them with resources and tools that support those efforts.
