CCSAR report on climate impacts on heritage and the archaeological record

Every day important sites, buildings, and other physical evidence of  environmental and cultural heritage are swept away by increasingly heavy seas. The Society for American Archaeology’s newly formed Climate Change Strategies and Archaeological Resources Committee (CCSAR) is building a global network among groups concerned with climate impacts on heritage and the archaeological record. Beginning with Arctic nations and expanding to at-risk archives elsewhere in the world, the IHOPE Threats to Heritage and the Distributed Observing Network (DONOP) has led this effort. This report summarizes some of the many activities already ongoing by committee members and allies, and provides links to useful websites and a short bibliography of some key references.  The endeavor welcomes comments and contributions.
