Abstract or Summary
  • Over the past several decades, quality climate information has become extremely valuable to environmental decision makers, yet little is known about how this information is distributed within a social network of professionals. This study focuses on a climate knowledge network associated with a NOAA Climate Impacts Research Consortium (CIRC) study of climate impacts in the Big Wood Basin of Idaho. Using this network as a foundation, this research attempts to determine how networks are formed, how they are organized, and how climate information from the network is used for environmental decision making. To conduct this research, a number of semi-structured interviews were conducted with members of the network. These interviews were then analyzed using both qualitative analysis and formal network analysis. Results of this analysis are examined through an application of the Diffusion of Innovations theory, and policy implications are discussed.
