The South Central CASC
The South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center (SC CASC) was established in 2012 and is one of ten CASC Centers across the country. Each regional CASC is housed at a host university which serves as a hub for a consortium of member organizations in the region. The CASC network generates actionable science, trainings, and products that address identified science needs which are useful in supporting resource management decisions, actions, and plans. The SC CASC accomplishes this through multi-disciplinary and stakeholder-driven approaches to funding projects that assess the impact of climate change on natural and cultural resources within our region of Oklahoma, New Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana.
