Interfacing Water, Climate, and Society: A Resource List
There is a timely and critical need for collaborative and integrative research on adaptation strategies between biophysical and social scientists in the climate and water community. In July of 2010, early career faculty and scientists convened for a Junior Faculty Forum at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado to discuss the frontiers of integrated water-climate-society vulnerability and adaptation science.
Early career scientists are not just seeking, but demanding more opportunities for interdisciplinary research and education that bridge social and natural sciences. Universities and funding agencies are increasingly developing programs to try and meet those needs and there are such interdisciplinary investigations being undertaken; however information about these opportunities, resources, and investigations have not been collated in a central repository for interested parties to find. This interactive site is meant to serve that need.
