USGS and DOI- - The Strengths of Science, Monitoring and Information

  • History of climate change science research and long-term monitoring
  • Monitoring assets- from ice cores to stream gages to Landsat
  • Multi-disciplinary capabilities and scientific expertise across the landscape
  • Capability to assess prehistoric, historic and current climate effects
  • Ability to integrate broad arrays and types of information for effective decision-making

Ice Core

Stream Gage

Landsat 7

the vision a national climate effects network
A truly integrated National climate effect monitoring network capable at a range of temporal and spatial scales

A scientific team focused on early detection and scientific analysis in support of adaptation or mitigation strategies

An information dissemination and decision support system for cost effective, scientifically rigorous management and policy decisions

The capacity for the next generation to protect and sustain our National trust resources through early detection of change

The Vision – A National Climate Effects Network
climate effects network primary deliverables
CORE intensively-instrumented sentinel watersheds

Improved laboratory capabilities

Gradient-based monitoring and research networks

Expanded local to national biological, hydrological and geological surveys

New remote sensing tools and processing algorithms

An integrated early warning system for the effects of climate on ecological and societal resources

Better and more comprehensive science-based decision support tools

State of the art information management and dissemination systems

Institutionalized communication between resource managers, policy makers, and scientists- interfaced with the DOI task force

DOI Climate Change Leadership – Science Priorities for the DOI Task Force
  • Development of a DOI integrated science and monitoring plan
  • Integration of existing monitoring networks
  • Downscaling of models
  • An adaptive management approach with USGS science and DOI resource Bureaus
  • Building decision-making capabilities centered on a robust Global Change Information Management System (GC-IMS)
  • Improving integration and access to USGS and other DOI Bureau data sets crucial to climate change science and resource management
