A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
The Northeast CSC provides scientific information, tools, and techniques that managers and other parties interested in land, water, wildlife and cultural resources can use to anticipate, monitor, and adapt to climate change in the Northeast region.
NE CSC Science Projects
The NE CSC works to provide climate science and global change research that assists managers in developing adaptation plans that address current and predicted changes at both regional and local scales.
The Northeast CSC is hosted by the University of Massachusetts - Amherst with a consortium of other institutions. In addition to these DOI web pages, up-to-date information about NE CSC projects and programs can also be found on the NE CSC Partner University website.
