Organization

Midwestern Regional Climate Center

The Midwestern Regional Climate Center (MRCC) is one of six regional climate centers in the U. S. managed by NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The MRCC is a cooperative program between NCDC and the Illinois State Water Survey - a division of the Prairie Research Institute at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.   The MRCC serves the nine-state Midwest region (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin). MRCC research helps explain climate and its impacts on the Midwest, and provide practical solutions to specific climate problems.

U.S. Forest Service Eastern Forest Environmental Threat Assessment Center

The mission of the Eastern Forest Environmental Threat Assessment Center (EFETAC) is an interdisciplinary resource that is actively developing new technology and tools to anticipate and respond to emerging eastern forest threats. EFETAC researchers work with other scientists nationally as well as with a variety of Federal, State, and local government agencies, universities, and non-governmental partners to address forest threats. EFETAC has many projects and collaborations related to climate change which can be accessed on their website.

 

 

Organization

Purdue Climate Change Research Center (PCCRC)

The Purdue Climate Change Research Center's (PCCRC) mission is to increase scientific and public understanding of the causes and impacts of climate change through fundamental research and effective education and outreach. The overarching goals are to understand the causes and consequences of climate change, improve predictive models to project future climate conditions, and inform on-going state, national, and international policy discussions on climate change, including mitigation and adaptation strategies.

 

 

Organization

USFS Northern Research Station

One of five regional units that make up the U. S. Forest Service (USFS) Research and Development organization, the Northern Research Station (NRS) maintains 21 research locations throughout a 20-state territory. The station develops management strategies for plants, soil, air, water, and wildlife to meet the needs of people and communities. NRS scientists are involved in research to understand the processes and extent of global climate change and their probable/possible effects on forest ecosystems.

 

 

Organization

USGS Indiana Water Science Center

The USGS Indiana Water Science Center provides current real time data on streamflow, ground water, water quality, precipitation, and lakes and reservoirs from sites throughout Indiana. The center has historical data on streamflow, ground water, water quality, and other water-related information. The center also has numerous publications, data sheets, projects, and scientific reports on a range of hydrological topics. The USGS provides current ("real-time") stream stage and streamflow, water-quality, ground-water levels, precipitation, and lake-stage for over 200 sites in Indiana.

 

 

Organization

Chicago Wilderness Alliance

Chicago Wilderness is a regional alliance that connects people and nature. There are more than 250 organizations involved that work together to restore local nature and improve the quality of life, by protecting the lands and waters of the region. Their four key initiatives are to restore the health of local nature, green infrastructure, combat climate change, and leave no child inside. The alliance is committed to using science and emerging knowledge, as well as a collaborative approach to conservation.

Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center

The Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center is one of nine 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. CASCs were established under Secretarial Order No. 3289, which called for an expansion of the scope and geographic reach of the DOI's climate-science efforts. CASCs provide scientific information, tools and techniques that land, water, wildlife and cultural resource managers and other interested parties can apply to anticipate, monitor and adapt to climate and ecologically-driven responses at regional-to-local scales.
