[Source: UA News] – The University of Arizona will head a new Southwest Climate Science Center established by the U.S. Department of the Interior to address the current and future effects of climate change on the region’s natural and cultural resources.

A $3.1 million, five-year grant has been awarded to the UA to initiate the center, one of eight regional centers established or planned in the nation. It is anticipated that the total funding will increase substantially as the Southwest center ramps up in the near future.
