On March 22 at 11:00 a.m., EDT, officials from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Energy will discuss the launch of an interagency program aimed at generating predictions of climate change and its impacts at more localized scales and over shorter time periods than have previously been possible. This project represents an historic augmentation of support for interdisciplinary climate change research by NSF and its partner agencies.
