Detailed Description

The U.S. Geological Survey's National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC) works to provide natural resource managers with the scientific tools and information they need to develop and execute management strategies that address the impacts of climate and other ongoing global changes on fish and wildlife and their habitats. Similarly, the eight U.S. Department of the Interior Climate Science Centers (CSCs), managed by NCCWSC, provide scientific support for climate adaptation across a full range of natural and cultural resources. Current NCCWSC and CSC supported science projects cover a wide array of topics ranging from vulnerability assessments of sea turtle nesting beaches to sea level rise in the Southeast U.S. to studies of the sensitivity of coastal rainforests to changes in glacier runoff in Alaska. In this first webinar in the 2013 Climate Change Science and Management Webinar Series, Dr. Shawn Carter will present a brief history of the NCCWSC and the CSCs, and will give an overview and update on the science priorities and ongoing work at the centers
