Thank you for your continued interest in the Third National Climate Assessment and USGCRP. We invite you to participate in this survey on how people and groups are using the report. As part of NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) Climate Assessment activities, Dantzker Consulting, LLC, has been contracted by North Carolina State University’s Institute for Climate Studies (NCICS/CICS-NC) to conduct a third-party, external evaluation of the Third National Climate Assessment Processes and Products to inform future assessments. New Knowledge Organization Ltd. is administering this survey as part of this effort. 
Please note: This survey is specific to the Third National Climate Assessment, released in May 2014, otherwise known as NCA3, and not other assessments.
Is this survey meant for me?
If you have used or have considered using the NCA3 report, either online or either of its printed Overview or Highlights digest documents, we invite you to participate. We are particularly interested in your brief response if you have chosen not to use the NCA3 in your work. If you have received this invitation more than once through a cross-posting or participated in our survey about your role as a developer of the NCA3, you may disregard this email.
Your input is valuable for the improvement of future National Climate Assessments.
We expect this survey to take no more than 5-10 minutes of your time.
