The Northeast Climate Science Center’s Strategic Science Agenda defines the context for climate impacts in the NE CSC region, describes the anticipated role and interactions of the NE CSC among its partners and stakeholders during the first five years (2013-2018) of our tenure, and establishes the seven science priorities (listed below) that the NE CSC will address through consortium and competitively funded research activities, as well as collaborations with regional partners.
Revisions to earlier versions of the Science Agenda were made in response to the feedback received during two Stakeholder Outreach and Science Planning Meetings held in January 2013 in Amherst, MA and Minneapolis, MN, as well as comments submitted by the Stakeholder Advisory Committee, an online survey, and targeted meetings with stakeholders.
The NE CSC greatly appreciates the input and contributions of the Consortium, our Advisory Committee, partners and stakeholders over the past year in helping us develop this visionary document. The NE CSC is confident this document will serve as a catalyst for future conversations with the climate and adaptation community in the region to advance common goals.
A white paper outlining the process behind the development of the Science Agenda and other supporting materials can be provided on request.
