Climate Adaptation Science Centers

Learn About the Regional CASCs

The mission of the National and Regional Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs) is to deliver science to help fish, wildlife, water, land, and people adapt to a changing climate.

Our network is comprised of the National Climate Adaptation Science Center (NCASC) and eight regional CASCs, formerly named the Climate Science Centers, covering the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawai'i, and the U.S. Affiliated Pacific Islands. Each CASC is based out of a host university in their region and most are comprised of multi-institution consortia, which include university and non-university partners.
