The Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center’s Strategic Science Agenda defines the context for climate impacts in the NE CASC region, describes the anticipated role and interactions of the NE CASC among its partners and stakeholders during the first five years (2013-2018) of our tenure, and establishes the seven science priorities (listed below) that the NE CASC will address through consortium and competitively funded research activities, as well as collaborations with regional partners.
The NE CASC greatly appreciates the input and contributions of the Consortium, our Advisory Committee, partners and stakeholders over the past year in helping us develop this visionary document. The NE CASC is confident this document will serve as a catalyst for future conversations with the climate and adaptation community in the region to advance common goals.
A white paper outlining the process behind the development of the Science Agenda and other supporting materials can be provided on request.
