The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) organizes an annual Deep Dive workshop that convenes researchers, practitioners and students to address a priority issue related to climate adaptation in the Northwest. Each Deep Dive aims to facilitate community development of an Actionable Science Agenda that outlines knowledge gaps and research needs and identifies opportunities to advance adaptation by linking science and practice.
Managing Western Washington Wildfire Risk in a Changing Climate
To help answer these questions, the NW CASC and partners convened a Deep Dive workshop in 2018, which brought together almost 100 participants from city, county, state, federal and tribal agencies. This workshop provided an opportunity to identify research and coordination needs for managing westside fire risk.
Ecological Transformation Now? Managing Post-fire Vegetation Change in a Warming Climate
The NW CASC’s 2020 Deep Dive convened natural resource managers and scientists from across the Northwest in a virtual working group process to review what is known and unknown about managing climate-driven, post-fire vegetation transitions in the Northwest and to identify actionable science and co-production priorities.
