Environmental Protection Agency Areas of Global Change Research. EPA research supports process-level understanding and modeling capabilities to more confidently predict global change impacts and feedback at the regional scale, and examines the relative risk of global change, especially in climate-sensitive regions (e.g., tundra and forest). EPA sponsors research on evaluating the processes and quantifying the relative contributions of anthropogenic and biological sources of trace gases, quantifying and modeling the consequences of climate change on ecosystems and their feedback to the atmosphere, and the interaction of trace gases in the atmosphere.

Related Research. In addition to focused USGCRP research, EPA conducts contributing research including environmental monitoring and assessment; development of ecological assessment methods; effects of tropospheric ozone on forest ecosystems; evaluation of anthropogenic methane mitigation options; evaluation of renewable energy production technologies (biomass, solar, wind); and immunological effects of UV radiation and environmental pollutants and chemicals.
