Southwest Climate Science Center and the Southwest Climate Assessment


09/16/2011


Host institution principals from the Southwest Climate Science Center participated in a meeting of authors for the Southwest Region Technical Report to the 2013 National Climate Assessment (NCA). They were joined by a large complement of colleagues from academic institutions, federal research agencies (including the USGS), and management bureaus (including representatives of the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives), as well as national NCA representatives.

The workshop took place August 1–4, 2011 at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado and was hosted by the Western Water Assessment (a NOAA Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments program). The regional assessment will cover vulnerabilities to climate and opportunities to address climate change challenges in the American Southwest.
