The NE CSC will communicate the best available climate science, management information, and tools for the Northeast regional natural/cultural resource community to: 1) improve access to this science to facilitate its use in decision-making and adaptation; 2) create and improve communications between scientists and natural/cultural resource managers; 3) enhance opportunities to address priority science needs and conduct high impact science; 4) document feedback from the natural/cultural resource community on evolution of priority science needs; and 5) facilitate improved decision making, adaptation, and management as a result of new climate impact science.
