The Southeast Climate Science Center (SE CSC) is designed to encourage, facilitate, and participate in cooperative action to address climate adaptation science needs across the entire Southeast region. The SE CSC relies upon priorities identified by natural and cultural resource managers, including the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs), and where possible, coordinates/integrates scientific activities with other public and private science entities working in the region.
