Type Research Project
URL no url available
Abstract This multi-disciplinary project will produce updated climate change projections (using several models and IPCC SRES scenarios) for the U.S. Northeast (New Jersey to Maine), downscale these climate projections, and assess impacts on several sectors (human health, coastal and marine areas, fisheries, forestry and agriculture, urban areas etc.). Susanne Moser will participate on various aspects of the project (overall scientific guidance and integration, coping/adaptation, and impacts on coastal areas).

"Because the pathway to sustainability cannot be charted in advance, it will have to be navigated through trial and error and conscious experimentation. The urgent need is to design strategies and institutions that can better integrate incomplete knowledge with experimental action into programs of adaptive management and social learning."
