Benet DuncanBiography: Benét Duncan is Western Water Assessment's Climate Assessment Specialist, and she is responsible for coordinating WWA climate assessment activities and analysis of other climate assessments in the Southwest Region. She works to understand how various organizations produce climate services and the climate information needs of stakeholders in our region with the ultimate goal of contributing to a regional and national scale sustained climate assessment infrastructure. Prior to joining WWA, Benét worked at the science-policy interface with the California Ocean Science Trust. There, she collaborated with scientists, managers, and stakeholders to develop usable science around California’s coast and ocean, with a particular focus on marine protected areas and climate change. As a postdoctoral fellow in UCAR’s Postdocs Applying Climate Expertise (PACE) program, Benét led development of ocean climate change indicators for Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. The project brought together over 50 researchers and managers, and it led to the first set of climate change indicators specifically developed for a national marine sanctuary. Benét received her MS and PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from the University of Colorado, and her BS in Atmospheric Science from the University of California Davis.
