The Doctoral Residency in Science Communication is a 12-month doctoral fellowship sponsored by the Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) and the University of Idaho College of Natural Resources' McCall Outdoor Science School (MOSS). During this residency, the Fellow will live and work at the McCall Field Campus and undertake an immersive program in climate-related science communication through guided study and mentored practice with a cohort of other graduate students.
Currently the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is revising its regional resource management plans for five districts in Oregon including Medford, Coos Bay, Roseburg, Salem and Eugene. Resource management plans outline how the bureau will protect areas of critical concern, including habitat for threatened and endangered species, while also supporting recreation, mining and grazing on public lands.
The Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) recognizes that preparing for climate-related environmental change requires a collective effort. In a broad sense, our fifth year was marked by an emphasis on forming new collaborations and strengthening existing ones.
Through this solicitation, the NW CSC is seeking innovative projects to help us assess which ecosystem components and ecological processes are most vulnerable to pronounced water deficiencies and to test or demonstrate new methods or technologies intended to lessen or adapt to the ecological impacts of drought.
The Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) is recruiting a Deputy Director to support the center in Corvallis, OR.
Wildfires in the American West are becoming more frequent due to global warming. This spells change for familar Northwest forests and plains on both sides of the Cascades. Scientists at the Conservation Biology Institute funded by the Northwest Climate Science Center have modeled projected vegetation changes under different emissions and management scenarios to give us the best available picture of what we can expect in the decades to come.
Scientists funded by the Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) have written a chapter titled “Using a dynamic global vegetation model to help inform management decisions” for a recently published book about the MC1 dynamic global vegetation model.
