On August 8th, the NE CSC hosted the first Monthly LCC-CSC Coordination Call. The purpose of this call was to have an open discussion on joint CSC-LCC science priorities, and the potential role of the NE CSC in pairing the expertise of our Consortium members and institutions with the LCCs to address outstanding science questions.
Four LCCs were able to attend the call: North Atlantic (NA LCC), Upper Midwest and Great Lakes (UMGL), Eastern Tallgrass Prairie & Big Rivers (ETPBR LCC), and Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks (GCPO). The discussion was informative for both the NE CSC and the LCCs on how we can work collaboratively to address complex and shared science priorities focused on understanding and managing the impacts of climate change and other stressors on regional natural and cultural resources.
