The vision for the U.S. National Climate Assessment (NCA) includes creating a set of indicators – measures of key physical, ecological, and societal variables and values – that would inform and support decision-making about climate changes, impacts, vulnerabilities, and responses. This round-table will explore ways in which crowd-based approaches, such as citizen science and community-based monitoring, are and can be used to support indicators or indicator systems of climate change, impacts and response.
