Science at the Southeast CSC




SeaTurtleCoralClimate and land cover change alter important physical processes, such as temperature, precipitation, streamflow, and sea-level. Changes in these processes affect terrestrial and aquatic organisms that provide important ecological services to society. The potentially large consequences of these changes highlight the need to develop effective conservation strategies to mitigate and adapt to climate and landscape change.
 
Strategic priorities are defined by a Southeast Climate Science Center Plan that was developed by a regional interagency working group and published in 2012.
 
The science plan identifies six science themes that frame the activities needed to achieve the objectives of the Southeast CSC:

Theme 1: Climate and Other Appropriate Projections to Use for Resource Management
Theme 2: Land Use and Land-Cover Change Projections
Theme 3: Impacts of Climate Change on Water Resources
Theme 4: Ecological Research and Modeling
Theme 5: Coastal and Nearshore Marine Environments
Theme 6: Impacts of Climate Change on Cultural-Heritage Resources

Learn more about how the SE CSC is implementing its science plan on the SE CSC university consortium website.

The Southeast CSC receives advice and guidance from a Stakeholder Advisory Committee and also periodically receives guidance from a panel of technical reviewers that assist with independent scientific review of projects comprising the SE CSC research program.
