Climate Adaptation Science Centers
From wildfires to sea-level rise, climate change creates evolving challenges for ecosystems across the Nation. The USGS National and Regional Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs) is a partnership-driven program that teams scientists with natural and cultural resource managers and local communities to help fish, wildlife, water, land, and people adapt to a changing climate.
The CASCs fund projects generating research, data sets, and tools to help natural and cultural resource managers protect natural places & local communities in a changing climate.
Our network is comprised of the National CASC and nine regional CASCs, covering the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawai'i, the U.S. Affiliated Pacific Islands, and the U.S. Caribbean.
The CASC network has supported over 200 students and early-career scientists and managers through 10+ fellowship and training programs.
