About the Climate Workspace

The Climate Workspace was developed by the Great Lakes Integrated Sciences + Assessments Center (GLISA) to support their role in bridging the gap between producers and users of scientific information.  The Climate Workspace offers the technical platform for sharing resources, expertise, and solutions around specific climate related questions and problems that groups of people are working to address.  Each question/problem is explored in its own project space with project members.  

​The intent is for future projects to be able to leverage and extend the work of past projects.  This is accomplished through the active participation of project members when they share their expert knowledge on resource and project pages.     ​
