TopoWX Annual Update Complete

The online topoclimatic air temperature dataset TopoWX went through a round of annual updates that included incorporating new observations and utilizing enhanced models. For the newest datasets (1948-2015), visit ScienceBase or the U.S. Geological Survey Geo Data Portal

The dataset is open source and represents the conterminous U.S. states. Because the data have been updated, new versions of TopoWX are not compatible with older versions. 

NCCSC Recognized with Climate Adaptation Leadership Award

The NCCSC was recently granted an Honorable Mention by the 2016 Climate Adaptation Leadership Awards for its work on an assessment of how key habitat types could be affected by climate change in Colorado’s 2016 State Wildlife Action Plan, part of a collaboration with Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Colorado Natural Heritage Program

North Central CSC Hosts Open Science Conference

Last week, the North Central Climate Science Center hosted an Open Science Conference at Colorado State University. More than 100 scientists, researchers, students, and resource managers attended the event, each contributing their unique views on how to move forward with adaptive management in a changing and uncertain climate.

Special Issue of Yellowstone Science Focuses on Climate Change

In its very first issue in 1992, Yellowstone Science explored possible impacts of changing climate scenarios in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. This month, the publication has released a special issue dedicated specifically to climate research, with contributions from more than 20 researchers across disciplines. Articles focus on snowpack, bird population vulnerability, and loss of ice patches in the region.

Media Spotlight: Scaling Climate Change Adaptation in the Northern Great Plains through Regional Climate Summaries and Local Qualitative-Quantitative Scenario Planning Workshops

The North Central Climate Science Center is excited to announce the five solicited projects recommended for funding in 2015. These projects will guide the research of the NC CSC into the future, ensuring that we build on our foundational science areas and drive research that has direct management implications.

Media Spotlight: Forecasting Changes in Sagebrush Distribution and Abundance under Climate Change: Integration of Spatial, Temporal, and Mechanistic Models

For the last month, the North Central Climate Science Center has been highlighting each of the recently announced projects recommended for funding in 2015 that will guide our revamp work in the years to come. This week, we will look at a project lead by Benjamin Poulter of Montana State University entitled “Forecasting Changes in Sagebrush Distribution and Abundance under Climate Change: Integration of Spatial, Temporal, and Mechanistic Models.

Media Spotlight: The Wind River Indian Reservations’ Vulnerability to the Impacts of Drought and the Development of Decision Tools to Support Drought Preparedness

For the month of March, the North Central Climate Science Center will be highlighting each of the recently announced projects recommended for funding in 2015 that will guide our revamp work in the years to come. This week, we will look at a project lead by Dr. Cody Knutson of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln entitled “The Wind River Indian Reservation’s Vulnerability to the Impacts of Drought and the Development of Decision Tools to Support Drought Preparedness.”

Media Spotlight: Informing Adaptation Strategies for Maintaining Landscape Connectivity for Norther Rockies Wildlife in the Face of Climate Change

For the month of March, the North Central Climate Science Center will be highlighting each of the recently announced projects recommended for funding in 2015 that will guide our revamp work in the years to come. This week, we will look at a project lead by Steven Hostetler of the Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center entitled “Informing Adaptation Strategies for Maintaining Landscape Connectivity for Northern Rockies Wildlife in the Face of Climate Change.
