Long Now Field Day July 2011

Welcome to the Nevada Infrastructure for Climate Change Science, Education and Outreach Website

On September 1, 2008, NSHE received an award of $15 million from NSF EPSCoR. The five-year award will fund science, education, and outreach infrastructure at UNR, UNLV, DRI, NSC, and NSHE's community colleges for the study of climate change and its effects on Nevada.

This project is creating a statewide interdisciplinary program that stimulates transformative research, education, and outreach on the effects of regional climate change on ecosystem services (especially water resources) and support use of this knowledge by policy makers and stakeholders.

:: Nevadans can study mountain climate via webcams
Researchers are giving free and universal access to all the information they are collecting from a network of scientific monitoring stations in a pair of Nevada mountain ranges. The data stream includes everything from current weather conditions to plant and soil moisture readings. But the live video feed is the feature most likely to appeal to the general public.
