National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) provides the university science and teaching community with the tools, facilities, and support required to perform innovative research. Through NCAR, scientists gain access to high-performance computational and observational facilities, such as 'supercomputers', aircraft and radar - resources researchers need to improve human understanding of atmospheric and Earth system processes. NCAR and university scientists work together on research topics in atmospheric chemistry, climate, cloud physics and storms, weather hazards to aviation, and interactions between the sun and Earth.




Nevada Climate Office

Nevada's State Climatologist collects and interprets Nevada's climate data and shares this analysis with interested stakeholders including the general public. The state climatologist operates from the University of Nevada, Reno.




Utah Climate Center

The mission of the Utah Climate Center (UCC) is to facilitate access to climate data and information, and to use expertise in atmospheric science to interpret climate information in an accurate and innovative fashion for the public. The mission includes the design of new products to meet present and future needs of agriculture, natural resources, government, industry, tourism, and educational organizations in Utah and the intermountain region.




Virginia Governor's Commission on Climate Change

Governor Timothy M. Kaine established the Governor's Commission on Climate Change in December 2007. The commission was assembled to prepare a plan for Virginia that identifies ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.




USGS National Wildlife Health Center

The National Wildlife Health Center (NWHC) is a science center within the United States Geological Survey (USGS), dedicated to assessing the impact of disease on wildlife and to identifying the role of various pathogens in contributing to wildlife losses. With climate change, the distribution and incidence of diseases and pathogens, such as lyme disease and west nile virus, are projected to grow.




Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB)

The Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) was created more than 75 years ago to provide policy direction on water issues. The agency maintains expertise in a broad range of programs and provides technical assistance to further the utilization of Colorado's waters. The CWCB's responsibilities range from protecting Colorado's streams and lakes to water conservation, flood mitigation, watershed protection, stream restoration, drought planning, water supply planning, and water project financing.




Department of the Interior (DOI): Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC)

The Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GBLCC) is one of 21 LCCs established by Secretarial Order No. 3289, which focus on on-the-ground strategic conservation efforts at the landscape level. LCCs are management-science partnerships that inform integrated resource-management actions addressing climate change and other stressors within and across landscapes, linking science and conservation delivery.




Florida Center for Environmental Studies

The Florida Center for Environmental Studies (CES) is a state university research center established in 1994, working in the broad field of the management of tropical and subtropical freshwater, estuarine and coastal ecosystems and in related information technology worldwide. At the request of the Florida Department of Transportation, the Center is currently developing a methodology for the assessment and mitigation of sea level rise impacts on Florida's transportation modes and infrastructure.




New York City Panel on Climate Change (NPCC)

In response to climatic change and associated impacts to the city's infrastructure, and in order to support goals outlined in PlaNYC, the City’s comprehensive sustainability plan, Mayor Michael Bloomberg convened the New York City Panel on Climate Change (NPCC) in August 2008. The NPCC, which consists of leading climate change and impact scientists, academics, and private sector practitioners, was charged with advising the Mayor and the New York City Climate Change Adaptation Task Force on issues related to climate change and adaptation as it relates to infrastructure.
