The Northeast Climate Science Center is proud to present its Annual Report. Research activities and accomplishments are highlighted for a variety of events and projects held over the last year. Featured events include: the Shifting Seasons Building Capacity for Tribal
Climate Change Adaptation Summit, which brought tribes and scientists together in Kashena, WI; and our annual Fellows Retreat introducing NE CSC Graduate and Postdoctoral Fellows to the climate adaptation challenges of forestry management in central Missouri. Several of our funded projects are wrapping up, read to learn about their contributions to mapping in the Northeast and Midwest regions, including baseline mapping improvements and changing species distributions. Our postdoctoral and graduate fellows have been busy conducting important climate science as well, check out our highlight on the work of one student who has been wading through the streams of the northeast to understand how climate change is impacting brook trout habitat. Those in flood prone areas might enjoy a feature on the “Storm Transposition Tool” that helps communities prepare for extreme rainfall. Finally, don't miss the (summary) of the research expertise of our Consortium faculty and staff, including our newest researcher whose job is to make climate models and assessments more accessible and understandable to our stakeholders.
We hope that you enjoy these highlights of our year!
