Collaboratory for Adaptation at Notre Dame

I've been remiss in updating this blog for a few weeks while the election season has been rolling on, adamantly ignoring climate chance until Sandy suddenly put it on the agenda. I've been fascinated watching how people are using or misusing science to link Sandy with climate change. I'll hopefully get back to exploring that in another blog post. But for now... look! Shiny!

A new research collaboration resource! Check out the Collaboratory for Adaptation to Climate Change, apparently launched in April 2011 and put into active use in August 2011, housed at University of Notre Dame. It's funded by the university and the NSF.

It took two seconds to start an account, and now I'm going to start exploring the events listings, online resources, and taking their "who are you?" poll. It seems to have a very fast, user-friendly interface, and all my favorite tools and trainings seem to be featured. I wonder if they are coordinating with CAKE?

  1. Dear Sara,
    From us at the Collaboratory for Adaptation to Climate Change, thanks so much for your posting! I hope that our paths cross sometime soon and we can sit down and chat. Are you going to the Denver meeting, for example? If so, we'd love it if you could attend our session on adaptation workflows, featuring the Collaboratory. And to answer your question, yes we are working with CAKE. The evidence of that isn't yet on our website, but we hope that it will be soon.
    Best wishes & thanks again,
    Jessica Hellmann (Assoc. Prof., Biol. Sci., Univ. of Notre Dame & Collaboratory PI)
