Uncharted Waters: The U.S. Navy and Navigating Climate Change

By Christine Parthemore, Jay Gulledge, Michael Horowitz and Nirav Patel

In the summer of 2008, Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Gary Roughead, asked the Center for a New American Security to conduct a brief survey of the challenges global climate change may pose for the U.S. Navy over the next 30 years. The report, Uncharted Waters: The U.S. Navy and Navigating Climate Change, was submitted to the CNO in December 2008. The Navy has since given permission to CNAS to release the report to the public.
