Fall 2012 Seminar Series
The speakers for this semester’s series represent a number of experts engaged in researching natural resource management issues relative to climate and other global change effects.
Our mission is to provide scientific information, tools, and techniques to anticipate, monitor, and adapt to climate change. The North Central Climate Science Center (NC CSC) is part of a network of eight CSCs created to provide scientific information, tools, and techniques that managers and other parties interested in land, water, wildlife and cultural resources can use to anticipate, monitor, and adapt to climate change.
The NC CSC is hosted by a consortium of nine institutions which provide expertise in climate science, ecology, impacts assessment, modeling, urban environments, and advanced information technology. This expertise is needed to deal with climate issues in the North Central US, where changes in temperature and precipitation could have significant effects environmental communities across the region.
The ReVAMP concept will ultimately serve as an operational resource available resource managers interested in developing plans that respect the dynamic and changing climate. Through this model, we will focus on three critical stages:
