Work sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy is beginning to develop the scientific information base and the analytical tools necessary to formulate responses to CO2/climate change, including descriptions of the nature, timing, magnitude and uncertainty associated with the consequences of CO2/climate change. Initially, the program will focus on a single region of the United States, employ a historical analog climate, and analyze the interactions of all of the resources resident within that region as they might evolve under current conditions and under evolving CO2/climate change over the next 50 years. Five elements of the program will address the issues of: Analysis, Information Systems, Uncertainty, Knowledge Transfer, and Coordination. This paper will given special attention to the analytical framework and in particular to the criteria for selecting a region for study.
