The USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC) website, which provides information on research and activities from NCCWSC and the DOI Climate Science Centers (CSCs), has been revamped. The website has a fresh new look and a more user-friendly interface, with improvements that include new search capabilities to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. See below for highlights of some of the new and updated features – we hope you’ll spend some time checking it out!
>> Search by Topic: From the Home page or the Explore By Topic page, you now have the ability to explore projects and products based on six different Science Topics (see list below). Once you land on a topic page, you can break down your search further by Subtopic, CSC, or Product Type (e.g. project, publication, etc.).
>> Science Snapshots: This page is home to a new series of short snapshots highlighting science from across the country. These snapshots provide a good overview of the types of science we do – and why it matters.
>> Search by Region: Like before, you can search our projects by CSC region. However, once you’ve arrived at a CSC page, you can find the information you are interested in more easily by filtering based on a Science Topic of interest. As before, you still have the capability to search projects based on Fiscal Year.
>> Project Pages: Once you click on a project that you’re interested in, you’ll be taken to that project’s own unique webpage. These project pages have a new look – the information is no longer hidden in a series of drop-down tabs, but instead is all laid out up front. You can read the project summary, look at the study area map, and scan the list of products that have resulted from the project. Here’s an example of a project page.
