I’m writing to ask for your help in identifying regional priority climate needs.  As part of ongoing efforts to identify climate needs, Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM) has received a grant from GEOSS (Global Earth Observations System of Systems) to conduct a cross-sector climate survey for the eastern US (South Carolina to Maine, including West Virginia and Ohio).  Survey results will be included in a NESCAUM authored report.  

Survey results also will be incorporated into NEclimateUS.org (currently under development), a gateway to a broad range of information related to climate in the eastern US.  The website is intended to serve as a shared resource for a wide audience, including research scientists, service providers, fish and wildlife managers, and decision-makers, and results from a collaborative effort of NWF/NALCC, NOAA and EPA.

Please complete the survey below, and distribute it broadly within your network of state and local contacts working directly with climate and relevant sectors.  We ask that the survey be completed by December 18th:

Thank you for participating in this effort; your help will go a long way to ensuring we are capturing regional climate needs!
