Institute for the Study of Society and Environment
"The Institute for the Study of Society and Environment (ISSE) integrates societal needs with knowledge of the environment to better understand and communicate impacts of weather, climate, and global change. ISSE fosters cross-disciplinary research by bridging social and natural sciences, the humanities, and technology to inform decision-making."
ISSE is part of NCAR, The National Center for Atmospheric Research (in the US), which in turn is operated by UCAR, The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research.
