On April 19 at 3:30 PM (Central), Dr. Kim Winton, SC CSC Director, will present a seminar, "Introduction to the New South Central Climate Science Center
", to the University of Oklahoma Department of Geography and Environmental Sustainability.
The South Central Climate Science Center (SC CSC) is a new research center formed by the Department of the Interior. It is operated through the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The SC CSC is hosted on the University Research Campus. The University of Oklahoma is the Host University and one of the research Consortium Members. Other members of the Consortium are Texas Tech University, Oklahoma State University, Louisiana State University, the Chickasaw Nation and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Lab. The groups all work together on themes such as climate change, precipitation variability, effects of climate on ecosystems and the human dimension related to climate change. The SC CSC just had its one year anniversary on March 1, 2013. This presentation will give you history of why the centers were established, a summary of the ongoing work, as well as information of how you can participate.
