Organization

North Carolina Coastal Resources Commission

The Coastal Resources Commission, or CRC, was created when the General Assembly adopted the Coastal Area Management Act in 1974. The CRC establishes policies for the N. C. Coastal Management Program and adopts implementing rules for both CAMA and the N. C. Dredge and Fill Act. The commission designates areas of environmental concern, adopts rules and policies for coastal development within those areas, and certifies local land-use plans. .

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.

Southeast Regional Climate Center

The Southeast Regional Climate Center (SERCC) is one of six regional centers in the U. S. managed by NOAA's National Climatic Data Center. The SERCC is housed at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and was created in response to an assessment that identified various user needs for regional climate services in the Southeast. The SERCC serves Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Puerto Rico and the U. S. Virgin Islands. The mission of the SERCC is to provide timely, high quality, and pertinent climate data and information to public and private users in the region.

Organization

USGS North Carolina Water Science Center

The USGS North Carolina Water Science Center investigates the occurrence, distribution, quantity, movement, and chemical and biological quality of North Carolina's surface and ground water. Specific water resources activities of the North Carolina Water Science Center include collection and analysis of long-term (prior to 1900) data for streams, reservoirs, estuaries, and groundwater; and short-term interpretive investigations of specific water-resources issues on regional, State, and national levels.

 

 

Organization

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

One of 21 Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (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. The currently participating bureaus are the National Park Service, Office of Surface Mining, and the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

National Assessment of Coastal Vulnerability to Sea-Level Rise: Preliminary Results for the Atlantic Coast

1999

One of three national assessments of U. S. coastal regions conducted in the late 1990's, this assessment focused on the Atlantic coastline, while the other two focused on the Gulf Coast and Pacific coastlines. The overall goal of these studies was to identify those portions of the U. S. coastal regions at risk and the nature of that risk (e. g. , inundation, erosion, etc. ). The long-term goal of this study is to predict future coastal changes with a degree of certainty useful for coastal management, following an approach similar to that used to map national seismic and volcanic hazards.

AgroClimate (SECC)

AgroClimate is an interactive website developed by the Southeast Climate Consortium (SECC) for use by farmers, ranchers, foresters, water resource managers, and those who advise them. The site uses crop simulation models and historic and forecast climate data to allow decision makers to compare changes in probable outcomes under different climate conditions.
