The Northeast Climate Science Center is proud to present its 2015 annual report. Events, research activities, and projects are highlighted for the last year.
Featured highlights include the annual Fellows Retreat which brought twenty Graduate and Postdoctoral Fellows from the NE CSC to Northern Wisconsin to learn about engaging with tribal leaders and resource managers, as well as identifying adaptation solutions specific to the Northern Wisconsin area. Also highlighted are research activites for several projects such as: the impacts of climate change on high elevation species of birds, trees, and mammals; how floodplains can be better managed to reduce risks in the Northeast; and the work being done to identify social drivers that influence conservation practices. Check out the work the work of one of our graduate fellows who has been assessing the impact of climate change on wild rice production and its effect on Indigenous people. 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!
