Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center

University of Washington College of the Environment Hosts Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center.

The University of Washington is the currently the host of the Department of the Interior’s Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC).  The University of Washington, Boise State University, University of Montana, Washington State University and Western Washington University make up the NW CASC university consortium. The University Director of the NW CASC is Amy Snover and the Deputy Director is Meade Krosby, both of the Climate Impacts Group. The NW CASC is also a member organization of the College of the Environment EarthLab. The leadership team works closely with the acting US Geological Survey Director, Nicole DeCrappeo.

This Federal-University partnership works closely with federal, state, and tribal entities – including those responsible for managing and protecting the land, water, and natural resources of the Northwest – to develop actionable climate science and decision support tools.
