Detailed Description

Hosted by the USGS Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs), the Climate Adaptation Postdoctoral (CAP) Fellows Program supports applied research at both national and regional scales. Each two-year fellowship cohort is centered around a common climate theme. The 2022-2024 cohort is themed “The Future of Aquatic Flows.”

Fellows work with mentors from regional CASCs to conduct research related to the theme, focusing on the management challenges experienced by resource stewards in those regions. Simultaneously, they also work together to create a national synthesis product that explores wide-scale implications of the theme. Just as each region is unique, each fellow brings their unique background and experience to the synthesis effort, creating a final product that is more than any one researcher could have made on their own.
