Dr. Tamara Wall is a researcher in the Western Regional Climate Center (WRCC); the program for Climate, Ecosystem, and Fire Applications (CEFA); and the California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP). She is involved in several on-going and planned projects related to integrating social science research with the production of climate knowledge and services at CNAP and the WRCC. These projects include 1) a mixed-method project to identify how managers in the water sector perceive the salience and legitimacy of available climate information as well as the overall accessibility of sources for climate information; 2) an on-line survey of WRCC users, and 3) an assessment of lead PI and stakeholders relationships and interactions at CNAP and the WRCC.
