December 18, 2013: The Secretary of the Interior has announced the 2013 Climate Science Center (CSC) research projects. The CSCs are awarding nearly $7 million to universities and other partners for research as part of President Obama‚Äôs Climate Action Plan to reduce carbon pollution, move our economy toward clean energy sources and begin to prepare our communities for the impacts of climate change. 

Each of the Department of the Interior's eight Climate Science Centers (CSCs) worked with states, tribes and indigenous communities, federal agencies, Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs), universities supporting the CSCs, and other regional partners to identify the highest priority management challenges in need of scientific input, and to solicit and select research projects.
