The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) strives to support sound resource management in the face of changing conditions by advancing understanding of the impacts of climate change and variability on fish, wildlife, water, land and people.
The overall direction and priorities for this research are outlined in our five-year Science Agenda. The Science Agenda was developed through a process of iterative collaboration between regional resource managers and scientists to identify key science needs associated with regional management priorities. The Agenda guides NW CASC investment in science across the region, through both consortium- and USGS-directed research funding. More information about our research portfolio is available here.
