About the Southeast CSC
Director: Dr. Gerard McMahon
Location: North Carolina State University
The Southeast Climate Science Center (SE CSC) was established by the Department of the Interior in 2010 to address the needs of natural and cultural partners for climate science in the Southeastern United States. Science products developed at the SE CSC will provide models of potential future climate impacts, assessments of likely impacts, and tools that can be used to inform the conservation management decisions of Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) and other partners. To learn more about the collaborative effort of the SE CSC and the LCCs, please see the SE CSC & LCC Fact Sheet.
The Southeast CSC is hosted by North Carolina State University (NCSU). NCSU will serve as the central location and administrative center for the SE CSC. The host institution also provides up-to-date information about SE CSC projects and programs on the NCSU Global Change Forum website. In addition to the host institution, the SE CSC also engages with several important partner institutions. These institutions provide expertise in climate science, ecology, impacts assessment, modeling, urban environments, and advanced information technology. SE CSC collaborations are focused on common science priorities, addressing priority partner needs, minimizing redundancies in science, sharing scientific findings, and expanding understanding of climate change impacts in the Southeast.

The SE CSC is one of eight Climate Science Centers managed by the National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC), under the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The NCCWSC and USGS support the Southeast Climate Science Center in producing partner-driven science and management tools. The SE CSC also receives advice and guidance from a Stakeholder Advisory Council. Science priorities and projects will also be advised by a Science Implementation Panel.
For more information about the Southeast Climate Science Center, please see the SE CSC Fact Sheet or Science and Operational Plan. Information can also be found in the SE CSC FY 2011-2012 Annual Report and FY 2012-2013 Annual Report.
