Breakout session iv applying remote sensing observations to impacts assessment

Breakout Session IV:Applying Remote Sensing Observations to Impacts Assessment

IPCC WG 2 Report (2008) Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability

Characterizes current knowledge, perspectives, and future needs.

IPCC assessments rely on scenarios based on 3 axes; two spatial and one cross-scale economic:

Global

Regional

Economic

Factors: Climate Scenarios; non-climate drivers (socio-economic driven changes in land use and resource use), mitigation and stabilization, Abrupt climate change.

Sectors: Freshwater; Ecosystems; Food, Fiber, & Forest Products; Coastal Systems and Low Lying Areas; Industry, Settlement & Society; and Public Health

Breakout Session IV:Applying Remote Sensing Observations to Impacts Assessment

  • IPCC WG2 Future Research Needs

    • Climate Modeling that elucidates the nature of future changes at regional scale.

      • Especially precipitation, hydrological consequences.

    • Understanding regional effects of abrupt climate change events.

    • Monitoring: Long-term field data collection on managed and un-managed systems and human activities. (Can remote sensing data augment this activity?)

    • Ability to integrate multiple stressors for vulnerability assessment.

    • Adaptation to environmental changes

    • Costs of adaptation/mitigation

Breakout Session IV:Applying Remote Sensing Observations to Impact Assessment

  • Remotely sensed observations should support efforts that bridge global and regional scales

    • Climate modeling – regional manifestation of changes

    • Abrupt climate change scenarios – regional manifestations.

    • Long-term field data collection that includes managed and un-managed systems and human activities.

Breakout Session IV:Applying Remote Sensing Observations to Impacts Assessment

  • Current missions provide a wide range of relevant data.

    • Research should be steered to use these data in relevant regional scale modeling efforts.

    • Spatial resolution: Are multi-kilometer scale, 1km, 500m, 250m resolutions adequate?

    • Cross-platform data integration needed (including non-NASA data) to link processes. What platforms/sensors should be grouped?


Questions to be addressed

Questions to be addressed

  • What research can we conduct to better address the impacts and consequences of global change?

  • What actions would be most useful to or supportive of future assessments?

  • What are the greatest challenges and opportunities relevant to the use of remote sensing data for impacts assessment?
