Recent Research on Climate Change

A bibliography with an emphasis on California

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) continually monitors various information sources -- including the scientific literature and publications of research organizations, governmental entities and academia -- to support its periodic report presenting indicators of climate change in California. OEHHA searches for literature with past and current data concerning changes in climate, the causes or drivers of climate change, and its physical and biological impacts. We target publications that relate to California, however we also look at literature on other geographic areas with findings relevant to California.  The bibliography below contains the literature that OEHHA has compiled.  For information about the identification and selection of references, please see the methodology section in our 2018 bibliography.

This bibliography is available below as a searchable database. It covers research published from 2009 to early 2019 (and includes literature summarized by OEHHA in earlier bibliographies).  Suggestions from readers are welcome.
