Presentation Transcript

  1. Department of the InteriorRegional Climate Science Centers Secretarial Order 3289 (9/14/09): DoI “protecting our country’s water, land, fish and wildlife, cultural heritage and tribal lands and resources from the dramatic effects of climate change that are already occurring”

  2. Climate Science CentersRegional hubs of the National Climate Change and Wildlife Center

  3. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives

  4. “Deep Science” Delivering Fundamental Climate-Impact Science to Resource Managers on a Regional Basis “Applied Science” On-the-Ground Applied Science and Adaptive Management Climate Science Centers (CSCs) Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) Complementary Efforts CSCs & LCCs

  5. Northwest CSC UI UW OSU • Additional collaborators: Boise State U., Idaho State U., Montana State U., Oregon Health and Science University, Portland State University, University of Idaho, University of Montana, University of Oregon, Washington State University, Idaho National Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Western Regional Climate Center

  6. Northwest CSC • Anticipated: ~$2M/yr targeted research, $1.3M/yr federal payroll • Awarded: $0.7M/yr, emphasis on training graduate students and on infrastructure • OSU – Program management • UW – Communications • UI – Cyberinfrastructure

  7. CSC Next Steps • Identify graduate students to work on year 1 projects • Develop stakeholder engagement process • Hire permanent director • Establish Advisory Council (fed-state-tribal) and Science Implementation Panel • Develop science plan • Hire federal science staff • Implement climate “boot camp”

  8. CSC Science Plan • Priorities guided by Advisory Council • Specific strategies developed by Science Implementation Panel • Broad stakeholder engagement, focused on DoI priorities in landscape and species management • Coordination with LCCs

  9. RISA - Climate Decision Support Consortium (CDSC)PIs Mote, Lach • OSU, UO • BSU, UI • UW • Extension • $0.7-1m/yr for 5 yrs

  10. Organizational Constellation OCCRI CSC UW CoEnv Idaho EPSCoR CDSC Connecting CSC and CDSC: PWM, program manager, stakeholder input processes

  11. CDSC goals • Form a research agenda around the needs of stakeholders • Assemble needed expertise to address key questions • Design and apply decision support tools to translate the research answers into practical applications • Generalize the results of those tools for other applications • Evaluate the effectiveness of our efforts.

  12. Envision scenario tool

  13. CDSC priorities • Establish broad process of stakeholder inputs to science plan (coordinated with CSC) • Serve US National Climate Assessment • Develop scenarios and tools to support planning processes Building on 15 years of fine work by CIG

  14. SRES A1B etc replaced by RCP2.6, RCP4.5, RCP6, RCP8.5 CMIP5

  15. US National Climate Assessment Regional scenarios next-generation climate, hydrology, vegetation, land use Stakeholder inputs CMIP5 global model outputs NARCCAP regional runs regional climateprediction.net statistical downscaling
