Community Information Resources

Message from the director of the Societal Impacts Program

June 28, 2012

Given significant budget challenges in FY12 the Collaborative Program on the Societal and Economic Benefits of Weather Information (aka the Societal Impacts Program) has been undergoing significant reorganization.

We have recently been able to reinstate some of our Community Resources including the WAS*IS webpages, the Economics Primer and the discussion board.

The Societal Impacts Program Discussion Board has been reinvented as the “Weather-Society Community Discussion Board” as a community service supported by Rebecca Morss here at NCAR. See

Over time we hope to continue or reinstate efforts and resources in support of the integration of social sciences throughout the weather community.
