GFDL & the DOI’s South Central Climate Science Center

On October 7, 2011, the Department of Interior (DOI) announced the selection of a seven member consortium to host the DoI’s South Central Climate Science Center. The Univ. of Oklahoma (OU) was the SC-CSC’s lead host institution. NOAA‘s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) was one of the consortium members. GFDL’s PI on the successful proposal was Keith Dixon.

The Climate Science Centers were established by DOI to:

  • provide scientific information tools and techniques to study impacts of climate change
  • synthesize and integrate climate change impact data
  • develop tools that the DOI managers and partners can use when managing the DOI’s land, water, fish and wildlife, and cultural heritage resources

GFDL’s participation in the now renamed South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center ended on 30 September 2019.
