The Northeast Climate Science Center (NE CSC) is designed to encourage, facilitate, and participate in cooperative action to address climate adaptation science needs across the entire Northeast region. The NE CSC relies upon priorities identified by Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) and other regional natural and cultural resource management partners; and coordinates or integrates scientific activities with other public and private science entities working in the region.
