Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center
The Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center is one of eight regional Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs) under the Department of the Interior (DOI) managed by the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) National Climate Adaptation Science Center. The mission of the Centers and National CASC is to "deliver science to help fish, wildlife, water, land, and people adapt to a changing climate." CASCs provide the tools that managers need to develop and implement strategies that address the impacts of climate change on natural and cultural resources.
North Carolina State University acts as the host institution for the Southeast CASC, “providing organizational leadership to implement the CASC mission through capacity building, project management, communications, partnership development, and connections with scientific capabilities in the region.” The SE CASC engages in collaborative partnerships with USGS, natural resource management organizations, and a consortium of academic institutions, including:
- Auburn University
- Duke University
- University of Florida
- University of South Carolina
- University of Tennessee
The Southeast CASC has built a Story Map describing its projects - designed to visualize how the science supported maps to the landscapes of the Southeast.
