You are invited to attend the 2015 Southwest Climate Summit when we'll move Climate-Smart Conservation forward by bringing together managers and scientists from across the Southwest.
Southwest Climate Science Center (SW CSC) Principal Investigators Dr. Glen MacDonald and Dr. Jonathan T. Overpeck have been selected as 2015 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fellows. Being elected a Union Fellow is a tribute to those AGU members who have made exceptional contributions to Earth and space sciences as valued by their peers and vetted by section and focus group committees. This honor is bestowed on only 0.1% of the membership in any given year.
A new paper published in the American Meteorological Society journal discusses the importance of coproduction of knowledge in climate science.
Join the Southwest Climate Science Center for a 2-day conference that brings together scientists and managers to share emerging climate science, Climate-Smart Conservation results, management and policy responses, and lessons learned across the Southwest.
How can land managers better determine which lands are most suitable for conservation? Sound science helps. A research team, supported by the Southwest Climate Science Center, recently created a framework to identify lands with high conservation value.
SW CSC's Glen M. MacDonald was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of his distinguished and continuing contributions in original research.
A new approach, described in a new publication, can provide guidance for the identification and protection of lands that may facilitate the conservation of species in the face of climate change.
Over the past several months, the Southwest Climate Science Center (SW CSC) has welcomed three new members to its team to contribute to the research, outreach, and other initiatives conducted at the center.
