The Doctoral Residency in Science Communication is a 12-month doctoral fellowship sponsored by the Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) and the University of Idaho College of Natural Resources' McCall Outdoor Science School (MOSS). During this residency, the Fellow will live and work at the McCall Field Campus and undertake an immersive program in climate-related science communication through guided study and mentored practice with a cohort of other graduate students.

Currently the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is revising its regional resource management plans for five districts in Oregon including Medford, Coos Bay, Roseburg, Salem and Eugene.  Resource management plans outline how the bureau will protect areas of critical concern, including habitat for threatened and endangered species, while also supporting recreation, mining and grazing on public lands.

drought in wetland

Through this solicitation, the NW CSC is seeking innovative projects to help us assess which ecosystem components and ecological processes are most vulnerable to pronounced water deficiencies and to test or demonstrate new methods or technologies intended to lessen or adapt to the ecological impacts of drought.

Fellow at Boot Camp
Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) University of Idaho Graduate Fellow, Ryan Neimeyer, used his science communication training from Climate Boot Camp 2015 to create a video about drought in the Northwest. This year, USGS communications specialist, Ryan McClymont, provided basic training in videography and editing to all Climate Boot Camp participants, enabling them to communicate their science visually using commonly available tools like smart phones and iMovie. Neimeyer took this training and ran with it, creating the first video to date about NW CSC's fifth annual Climate Boot Camp.

In recent years, wildfires have burned trees and homes to the ground across many states in the western U.S., but the ground itself has not gotten away unscathed. Wildfires, which are on the rise throughout the west as a result of prolonged drought and climate change, can alter soil properties and make it more vulnerable to erosion. A new study shows that the increase in wildfires may double soil erosion in some western U.S. states by 2050, and all that dirt ends up in streams, clogging creeks and degrading water quality.

Fire in Sagebrush

Wildfires in the American West are becoming more frequent due to global warming. This spells change for familar Northwest forests and plains on both sides of the Cascades. Scientists at the Conservation Biology Institute funded by the Northwest Climate Science Center have modeled projected vegetation changes under different emissions and management scenarios to give us the best available picture of what we can expect in the decades to come.

Climate change has a direct and evident impact on Native American tribal communities by disrupting local economies and traditional cultures. Members of tribes from across the United States will convene at the University of Idaho’s McCall Field Campus in June 2016 for the first-ever National Tribal Climate Boot Camp.

The Cascades frog depends on mountain wetlands for survival.Maureen Ryan/University of Washington
Far above the wildfires raging in Washington’s forests, a less noticeable consequence of this dry year is taking place in mountain ponds. The minimal snowpack and long summer drought that have left the Pacific Northwest lowlands parched have also affected the region’s amphibians through loss of mountain pond habitat.

West Coast Tidal Wetland
The U.S. Geological Survey and Oregon State University released a report this week examining Pacific Northwest tidal wetland vulnerability to sea level rise. Scientists found that, while vulnerability varies from marsh to marsh, most wetlands would likely be resilient to rising sea levels over the next 50-70 years. Beyond that time, however, most wetlands might convert to intertidal mudflats as sea level rise outpaces the capacity of tidal marshes to adapt.
