Organization

Headwaters Economics

Headwaters Economics is an independent, nonprofit research group that works to inform decision-making about community development, land management, and natural resources management in the West. A related goal is improving the transparency and accountability of these decisions.

Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center

The Northeast 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. 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.

 

 

Organization

NOAA Office for Coastal Management

The Office for Coastal Management (OCM) is tasked with implementing the Coastal Zone Management Act. OCM activities include working with states and territories to conserve and protect coral reefs, operating a system of National Estuarine Research Reserves, and developing a system of marine protected areas.

 

 

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

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.

Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) - Regional Models

Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) Climate Working Group created and maintains regional, down-scaled global climate models to demonstrate how Wisconsin's climate has been changing and project how it might change in the years to come. A number of methods have been developed to derive detailed regional and local climate data in order to evaluate the potential impacts of climate change by incorporating landscape features, water bodies, or other characteristics that may influence regional or local climate into global models.
