, GLISA is providing customized climate information while other organizations help to further tailor the information, drawing on their understanding of stakeholders’ decision contexts to help improve information fit and interplay. Through the currently nascent networked chain approach, GLISA is playing a guiding role in cultivating relationships between partnering boundary organizations facing similar challenges. In all of these approaches, GLISA is seeking to increase the range of clients it can

gain insight into additional institutional characteristics that would support them, and to assess the CES’s potential to serve as a boundary organization to support local-level adaptation. a. Methodology The case study draws on literature on the history and current organization of the CES, as well as an organizational ethnography of UACE conducted in 2011. McNie (2007) has suggested that there is need for a better understanding of how the iterative relationships so crucial to the creation of

economics (see, e.g., Little et al. 2018 ; Rutherford and Schultz 2019 ). Social science research on the process of boundary spanning, such as this project, also informs AFSC activities and boundary spanning strategies. AFSC’s first coordinator and current subject matter experts come from fire management careers, and the current coordinator previously worked in science administration. This experience conveys the necessary legitimacy to build trust with the management community ( Pinkerton 2018 ). They

knowledge networks connect people across disciplinary or occupational boundaries through various interactions. Knowledge networks, in turn, are related to—but distinct from—boundary organizations (see section 5 ). The latter play an intermediary role between different specializations and disciplines within a knowledge network by providing translation services between disciplines, mediating relations between information producers and users, and integrating user needs into producer activities. In the

most affected by climate change ( McNeeley 2017 ; Adger et al. 2014 ; Bennett et al. 2014 ). Indigenous testimonies and reports by diverse scientific organizations, from the IPCC to tribal governments, are converging on key factors for why indigenous peoples are, in many cases, negatively affected by climate change. The factors include how colonialism and other forms of political domination have rendered indigenous land bases less suitable for taking adaptive measures and how current laws and

specialized topic that are readable for a more general audience than research articles. This Editorial describes the purpose, content, and the process of Reviews. The purpose of a Review is summarized in an Editorial in Monthly Weather Review ( Schultz 2008 , p. 5): Review might more properly be called literature synthesis. For students and scientists alike, many Reviews are as valuable as textbooks, albeit more current. … A common perception is that a Review is a quick publication, lacking new

behavior, policies, and current and future well-being are of interest to natural sciences scientists regardless of their discipline. Moreover, the results of research at this nexus of the physical and the social and behavioral sciences also provide critical information to decision and policy makers and to managers in both the public and private sectors. But until the decision to publish Weather, Climate, and Society by the American Meteorological Society (AMS), scientists and decision makers lacked a

1. Introduction Evaluating people’s uses, perceptions, and interpretations of uncertainty in current weather forecasts across different contexts is important nowadays, as weather forecasts are extremely useful for a wide range of applications, for instance, in agriculture, energy, transport and tourism, and recreational sectors. These forecasts are based on numerical weather prediction (NWP) models that simulate the state and dynamics of the atmosphere. Therefore, weather forecasts are

sources 1) Current knowledge networks Managers primarily accessed information products directly from agency websites and portals, such as NRCS for snowpack data, USGS for streamflow data, and NOAA for temperature and precipitation forecasts. Only one manager regularly participated in university-based boundary activities such as the Western Water Assessment Climate Dashboard and the Colorado Climate Center Drought Early Warning System webinar; the other 13 interviewees were either vaguely familiar with

information, including seasonal climate forecasts (SCFs), and discussions on the implications of probable climate outcomes with users from climate-sensitive sectors. RCOFs represent a major international climate service effort that began in the late 1990s and that helps support early warning systems for, among others, drought conditions and malaria outbreaks. Currently, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) supports 15 RCOFs around the globe. While there is some evidence that RCOFs have helped
