WInd River Project Team Honored with Climate Adaptation Leadership Award

In the spring of 2017, the NC CSC's Wind River Drought Preparedness project team was awarded with a Climate Adaptation Leadership Award alongside the project's many partners and regional collaborators in the "broad partnership" category for "demonstrating exemplary leadership in reducing climate-related threats and promoting adaptation of the nation’s natural resources." Read more about the award and about the project that earned this broad partnershp accolade. 

Climate Driver’s Team Lead Publishes Article on Warming in Boreal Midlatitudes

Imtiaz Rangwala, co-lead of the North Central Climate Science Center’s climate drivers foundational science area, recently published an article on elevation dependent warming in boreal midlatitudes.

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.

Early Career Professionals Attend NC CSC Forum on Climate Science and Tools

Students and early career professionals from across the north central region met at Colorado State University this week to learn about the information and tools used by the NC CSC to assist resource managers in preparing for climate change.

Wind River Research Team Publishes First Climate and Drought Summary

Researchers working with tribal leaders in the north central region have published their first edition of the Wind River Reservation Climate and Drought Summary.

North Central CSC Climate Researcher Urges Temperature Monitoring at High Evelations

While climate change occurs at a global scale, impacts and drivers of change occur at smaller regional scales. According to a recently released study titled “Elevation-dependent warming in Mountain Regions of the World” there is growing evidence that high mountains regions are warming faster than lower elevations” but the lack of recorded data above 11,000 feet could hold scientists back from fully understanding associated causes and impacts.

CSU's Conservation Leadership through Learning Students Visit Climate Science Center

Students from Colorado State University’s Conservation Leadership through Learning Program visited with members of the North Central Climate Science Center on April 16th to learn about the work of the NC CSC and its application to conservation management.

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.”
