LTG: Decision makers will use information and decision tools from the GCRP to protect aquatic ecosystemsby adapting to global change
applying our research framework sacramento river
Applying Our Research Framework: Sacramento River
  • Stakeholders: identified information needs about priority ecosystem services
  • Impacts: modeled temperature and flow impacts on water supplies, Chinook salmon
  • Adaptation: developed options to adapt to water supply shortfalls
  • Outcomes: results and WEAP tool generated interest and use among more stakeholders

See poster “Watersheds: Impacts, Adaptation and Outcomes”

New Research and Assessment Needs

Watersheds: South Florida
  • Goal - determine effect of climate change on Everglades restoration to inform planning decisions
  • Outcomes - South Florida Mgt District and other state agencies are using models and information:
    • In CERP implementation plans
    • To set performance measures for evaluating CERP impacts
    • To choose species of concern
    • To formulate salinity targets for Biscayne Bay

See poster “Place-based Impacts Assessments of Global Change on Aquatic Ecosystems”

New Research and Assessment Needs

Corals: American Samoa
  • Goal – assess relative effects of climate change and interacting stressors on coral bleaching and recovery to aid in decision making
  • Outcomes – provide recommendations to local government that link with their decision opportunities
    • Improve water quality
    • Implement monitoring program
    • Establish MPA network for resilience

New Research and Assessment Needs

Biocriteria
  • Goal - determine implications of climate change for specific biological criteria to inform Biocriteria Program Managers
  • Anticipated outcomes
    • Managers know the sensitivity of biological criteria to climate change
    • Program managers have the information they need to select biocriteria that are either insensitive to climate or specifically designed to detect climate change impacts
    • New Biocriteria Programs are designed taking climate change into account

See posters “Supporting Decision Making for Adaptation to Global Change” and “Future Research Directions to Promote Environmental Outcomes”
