What is GLISA?
The Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments Center (GLISA) is a collaboration of the University of Michigan and Michigan State University funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). GLISA is part of a national network of NOAA Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) centers that focus on adaptation to climate change and variability. GLISA is the NOAA RISA for the Great Lakes Basin.
What We Do
RISAs act in the space between climate research and climate services. GLISA integrates information from a wide array of scientific fields, helps develop collaborations between entities with similar goals, and lends climate information support to decision makers throughout the region. We connect users of climate information with generators of climate information.
- To contribute to the long-term sustainability of the region in the face of a changing climate
- Facilitate smart decision-making backed by scientific knowledge
Our Core Management Team is comprised of climatologists, social scientists, and outreach specialists. We’re interested in understanding the potential impacts of climate change, how climate information can be most useful, and how decisions regarding climate change adaptation are made.
