panhandle, conditions are often drier, and the water table is relatively deep where the surface landscape is very flat, while eastern portions of the state receive greater amounts of rainfall annually and have a shallower water table; however, farmers there must contend with a hillier landscape. Interviews were conducted in each climate division in an attempt to represent this variability to some degree. Results of the interviews demonstrated that all producers in the study were concerned with the

time to facilitate the development and application of actionable science is needed ( McNie 2013 ; Meadow et al. 2015 ; Wall et al. 2017b ). Table 1. Key modes of science production in boundary organizations as used in this paper. This paper uses case study research to assess the Alaska Fire Science Consortium (AFSC)—a boundary organization focused on fire science and management in Alaska—and to develop a deeper understanding of how boundary organizations and knowledge coproduction work in

composed of their own unique blend of reflective activities to continually monitor and enhance their work. This finding highlights that even though there were suggested practices offered and documented in this study, effective learning by doing is a deeply personalized process where participants’ past history, current experiences, and future goals come into contact with one another in the service of personal and professional growth. Suggested practices have reflective value as objects or ideals that

In recent weeks, people around the world have expressed deep disappointment that the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, held in December 2009, did not produce a firm agreement that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help the world adapt to present and future impacts of climate change. As commentators have stressed, international agreements are often difficult to establish and the failure of this conference can be traced to many sources. The consensus process

study begins to address this research need by qualitatively examining Virginia local news viewers’ interest in learning about climate change from weathercasters, their understanding of climate change messages in on-air examples, and their reactions to on-air climate change content in a television weather forecast. 2. Literature review a. The perception of climate change as a distant threat When asked what comes to mind when they think of climate change (i.e., top-of-mind associations), Americans and

of Climate Change” ( National Research Council 2010 ) highlights the need to take a risk management approach to adaptation. The “Progress Report of the Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force” ( White House Council on Environmental Quality 2010 ) states as a guiding principle that priority be placed on protecting the most vulnerable people as well as places and infrastructure. To take these recommendations seriously and act wisely requires learning more about who and what is vulnerable

Water Management Model (SWMM)] that can help stormwater managers understand how existing infrastructure will perform under possible future conditions ( EPA 2015 ). SWMM models hydrological systems to estimate the impacts on water quantity and quality of different engineered stormwater solutions. Tools such as these provide detailed information about the specific aspects of broader systems producing stormwater and managing stormwater. While decision support tools can enable deeper understandings of

not only as an interdisciplinary research opportunity but also as an inevitable and necessary approach to climate change, one that has the potential to involve local people (in particular indigenous people) in self-determined and important ways. The intellectual union between anthropology and climate change adaptation may seem straightforward. But this paper argues that anthropologists have generally failed to critically analyze the deeper assumptions that lie behind adaptation, resilience, and

risks. Building effective resilience to periods of drought is thus not an easy task, and it involves not only a response to the amount of change expected (the drought as hazard) but also requires knowledge about the system’s ability to learn and innovate in the face of uncertainty and change (adaptive capacity; see Lemos 2007 ). In this article we argue that cases providing examples of past learning and/or failure to learn during droughts can be very informative for future adaptation practice
