Science at the Northeast CSC
Priority science activities of the Northeast CSC includes:
- Use and creation of high-resolution climate models and derivative products to help forecast ecological and population responses at national, regional, and local scales
- Integration of physical climate models with ecological, habitat, and population response models
- Development of methods to assess vulnerability of species, habitats, and human communities
- Development of standardized approaches to modeling, monitoring, data management and decision support
The research direction taken by the Northeast CSC will be guided by a climate science agenda that will establish priorities and help ensure that the scientific program addresses priority management needs. In developing this agenda, the CSC will receive advice and guidance from a Stakeholder Advisory Council (SAC). A Science Implementation Panel (SIP) will assist with independent scientific review of projects comprising the NE CSC research program.
