Two weeks ago, I went down to the St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center for a SE Climate Science Center science meeting. For this first year, all Climate Science Center funds are going to go to projects headed by either USGS or NC State investigators.

Conservation Planning Atlas Update

Hi Everyone,

I want to give you all an update on our work with the Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks LCC to create a conservation planning atlas for Southeast LCCs. As you may remember, the SALCC has identified a need for a platform that serves a limited number of key spatial datasets to support landscape conservation and allows end-users to easily discover, assess, and integrate existing data and tools. The conservation planning atlas is being explored as a way to meet that…

Gulf Coast Prairie LCC Science Forum--Gulf Coast Landscape Conservation Liaison


I recently attended the Gulf Coast Prairie LCC Science Forum, held February 21-22 in Ft. Worth Texas. The Science Forum was the first step in the GCPLCC's process to identify science needs for the Gulf Coast Prairie landscape. There were over 50 participants representing several partners within the GCPLCC. Prior to the workshop, participants were asked to identify science needs within three geographic context areas (coastal, terrestrial, and aquatic) and six themes (effects of…

Opportunity for Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Training

Last summer I attended a training course to learn to perform Climate Change Vulnerability Assessments.  The course, which is based on a guide to climate change vulnerability assessment developed jointly by the NWF, DOD, NPS, USFWS, USFS, NOAA, and USGS entitled Scanning the Conservation Horizon is being offered again in several locations throughout the US.  Right now, climate change may not be an integral part of your planning exercises because the development of data to support those…
