We want to be closely engaged with natural resource managers to co-produce science that directly connects to management needs. Broadly, this includes physical, biological, ecological, social, economic, and decision sciences to understand: (1) the extent of projected climate and land use change, (2) the impacts of change on plants, wildlife, ecosystems, and cultural resources and (3) how to frame adaptation problems and allocate adaptation resources wisely.
All of these science and management needs are important. In this survey we seek to better understand which SE CSC activities might be particularly useful for you in the coming years. Thanks for taking the time to participate and providing us valuable guidance.
EXTENT/MAGNITUDE refers to the amount of change in climate (average weather conditions) and land use conditions (e.g. urbanization and development)
IMPACTS TO NATURAL SYSTEMS refers to the effect climate and land use change will have on key resources or on-the-ground conditions in the future
RESOURCE ALLOCATION AND ADAPTATION DECISION refers to important characteristics of how managers and agencies plan actions to adapt and allocated resources (e.g. budget, people, effort) to deal with climate and land use change and its impacts.--
