Pages from 2017 Annual Report web.jpg

 Read about our work in assessment of tipping points and projected habitat loss to sea level rise and flooding in the Northeast, our study on impacts of winter severity and wildlife, our work to further the understanding of the Northeast region’s vulnerability to changes in timing and magnitude of river flows, and more.

 Our featured highlights include the 2017 NE CASC Regional Science meeting that welcomed 63 researchers and 93 resource managers, agency representatives, and NGO leaders to develop interdisciplinary collaborations and improve understanding of the economic and social benefits of climate informed decisions.

 Also highlighted is our addition of two new Tribal Climate Science Liaisons, Sara Smith and Casey Thornbrugh, who will facilitate regional Tribal Nation’s development of climate adaptation planning. Their efforts will provide integral support in collaboration with tribal leaders to identify climate research needs and priorities, as well as provide up to date climate science information to Tribes throughout the region.

 Check out the work of one of our graduate fellows who evaluates fisherman’s access to abundantly caught fish in a changing climate and the impacts to consumer demand in restaurants.

 Finally, don't miss the updates on our ongoing work to develop models and information to support climate adaptation planning on the local level in collaboration with the Massachusetts Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.  

We hope that you enjoy these highlights of our year!
