  1. Southeast Climate Consortium • Keith T. Ingram 1

  2. Mission • The mission of the Southeast Climate Consortium is to use advances in climate sciences, including improved capabilities to forecast seasonal climate, to provide scientifically sound information and decision support tools for agriculture, forestry, and water resources management in the Southeastern USA. • As a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional team, the SECC conducts research and outreach to a broad community of potential users and forms partnerships with extension and education organizations to ensure that SECC products are relevant and reliable. 2

  3. Members • University of Florida • Florida State University • University of Miami • University of Georgia • University of Alabama -- Huntsville • Auburn University • North Carolina State University 3

  4. Funding Sources • NOAA - RISA • USDA - RMA • USDA - CSREES • NOAA - SARP, TRACS • NASA • SERDP 4

  5. Strategic Themes, 2004-2009 • 1. Climate research • 2. Agricultural research • 3. Water resources research • 4. Decision analysis research • 5. Agricultural extension 5

  6. Drought related activities • Drought monitoring and forecasting • LGMI: AOSC, AgroClimate • DSSAT crop stress • ARID: Generic agricultural drought index • MWDI: Municipal water deficit index • Streamflow monitoring and forecasting • SEWaterClimate.org • Tampa Bay Water project 6

  7. New operational site announced August 2008 Hosted by Florida Cooperative Extension AgroClimate.org 7

  8. Keys to SECC Success • Participation of anticipated audience from beginning • Multi-disciplinary approach – physical, biological, and social sciences • Partnership with extension – a boundary organization 8
